DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, May 2015) Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up and peanut allergies, there was a simpler time called the '80s. For geeky and movie obsessed youngest child Adam, 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 more yelling. Mom, Beverly, is a classic "smother," an overbearing, overprotective matriarch who loves her delicious kids, but still rules this brood with 100% authority and zero sense of boundaries. Dad, Murray, is gruff and sometimes oblivious, parenting with half his attention span but all his heart. Sister, Erica, is popular and terrifying, doing her best to cover up that she's the smartest of the clan. Barry is a passionate dreamer, who maybe dreams a little too big and who always gets the short end of the stick. Adam is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director who's navigating first love and growing up with his family. Rounding out the family is beloved grandfather, Al "Pops" Solomon, the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who's learning as much from his family as he teaches them. "The Goldbergs" stars Wendi McLendon-Covey as Beverly Goldberg, Patton Oswalt as adult Adam Goldberg, Sean Giambrone as Adam Goldberg, Troy Gentile as Barry Goldberg, Hayley Orrantia as Erica Goldberg, with George Segal as Pops Solomon and Jeff Garlin as Murray Goldberg. "The Goldbergs" was written by Adam F. Goldberg ("Breaking In," "Fanboys"). Executive producers are Adam F. Goldberg, Doug Robinson, Alex Barnow, Marc Firek and David Katzenberg. "The Goldbergs" is from Adam Sandler's production company, Happy Madison, and is produced by Sony Pictures Television.
