Season 1

Parenthood is a one-hour drama inspired by the box-office hit of the same name. This re-imagined and updated Universal Media Studios/Imagine Television production introduces audiences to the very large, very colourful and imperfect Braverman family.

Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham), a financially strapped single mother, is packing up her Fresno apartment and uprooting her two inconvenienced kids, Amber (Mae Whitman) and Drew (Miles Heizer), to make a big move back home to Berkeley to be closer to her family.

On the home front, Sarah is greeted by her larger-than-life, headstrong father, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson), and pillar-of-strength mother, Camille (Bonnie Bedelia), who are privately dealing with their own marital issues.

Meanwhile, Sarah's sister and complete antithesis, Julia (Erika Christensen) is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her stay-at-home husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger).

Commitment-phobe Crosby (Dax Shepard), Sarah's younger brother, must suddenly contend with accepting adult responsibility when an old flame Jasmine (Joy Bryant) shows up unexpectedly and he must re-evaluate his priorities.

However, it's Adam (Peter Krause), the oldest Braverman sibling, who must relinquish his preconceived expectations about what constitutes a "normal" family when he, his wife Kristina (Monica Potter) and teenage daughter, Haddie (Sarah Ramos), learn that their eccentric son and Haddie's little brother, Max (Max Burkholder), is diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.

Although each sibling and family has its own share of life to grapple with, perhaps this reunion is the push they need to help each other pick up the pieces and focus on the everyday challenges that families face while raising children and starting over.

Serving as executive producers are Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, Jason Katims – who wrote the pilot episode - and David Nevins. Thomas Schlamme is the director and executive producer of the pilot.
