03/02/2010 (10:00PM - 11:00PM) (Tuesday) : MEET THE BRAVERMAN FAMILY�SERIES PREMIERE�From Executive Producers Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Jason Katims, "Parenthood" introduces us to the very large, very colorful and imperfect Braverman family. Single mother Sarah (Lauren Graham, "Gilmore Girls") and her two children Amber (Mae Whitman, "In Treatment") and Drew (Miles Heizer, "ER") are moving back home with her parents Zeek (Craig T. Nelson, "Family Stone," "Coach") and Camille (Bonnie Bedelia, "Heart Like a Wheel"). Sarah's sister and complete antithesis, Julia (Erika Christensen, "Traffic") is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her stay-at-home husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger, "Eli Stone"). Commitment-phobe Crosby (Dax Shepard, "Baby Mama"), Sarah's younger brother, must accept adult responsibility when an old flame Jasmine (Joy Bryant "Antwone Fisher") shows up unexpectedly. Meanwhile, Adam (Peter Krause, "Six Feet Under"), the oldest Braverman sibling, his wife Kristina (Monica Potter, "Trust Me") and teenage daughter, Haddie (Sarah Ramos, "American Dreams"), learn that their eccentric son and Haddie's little brother, Max (Max Burkholder, "Brother and Sisters"), 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. Savannah Paige Rae also stars. Directed by Thomas Schlamme.
