Description

The Goldbergs is an American television sitcom created by Adam F. Goldberg, set in the late-1980s and based on Goldberg's real-life childhood in which - under the watchful eye of an eleven-year-old boy's video camera - a family faces the challenges of life in the 80's, including two new teenage drivers and a grandfather who shouldn't be allowed behind the wheel.

Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up and peanut allergies, there was a simpler time called the '80s.

For geeky 11-year old Adam (Sean Giambrone) these were his wonder years and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy.

The Goldbergs are a loving family like any other, just with a lot more yelling. Mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is a classic "smother" an overbearing, overprotective matriarch who rules this brood with 100% authority and zero sense of boundaries.

Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) is gruff, hot-tempered and trying to parent without screaming. Sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is 17, hot, terrifying and not one to mess with.

Barry (Troy Gentile) is 16, an overly emotional teen with severe middle child syndrome. Adam (Sam Giambrone) is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director who's crushing on an older woman.

Rounding out the family is beloved grandfather Al "Pops" Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who's schooling Adam in the ways of love.

When Pops buys a new sports car and offers his Caddy to middle child Barry, it's enough to drive this already high-strung family to the brink of chaos.

The Goldbergs stars Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) as Beverly, Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Murray, George Segal (Just Shoot Me!) as Pops, Hayley Orrantia (The X Factor) as Erica, Sean Giambrone as Adam and Troy Gentile (Good Luck Chuck) as Barry. 

The Goldbergs was written and executive produced by Adam F. Goldberg (Breaking In, Fanboys)and executive produced by Doug Robinson. The pilot was directed by Seth Gordon (Identity Thief, Horrible Bosses).

The Goldbergs is from Adam Sandler's production company HappyMadison and is produced by Sony Pictures Television.
