Try this recipe for a TV series. First, take two unusual siblings: Moon Unit Zappa, whose 1982 novelty song "Valley Girl" ushered in a new wave in pop culture, and her brother, Dweezil, an outspoken metal guitarist and singer whose last album was called, "My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama." Both are the offspring of cult rock star Frank Zappa. Next, cast two sane and stable TV actors as parents. Finally, call the show "Normal Life." Bizarre kids. Straight parents. Laugh a minute. Hit sitcom.
