PREMIERE

AS ADAM CAPTURES FAMILY LIFE ON VIDEOTAPE, BROTHER BARRY CELEBRATES HIS BIRTHDAY WITH A PRESENT HE DOESN'T EXPECT, ON THE PREMIERE OF ABC'S "THE GOLDBERGS"

All-star Cast IncludeS Wendi McLendon-Covey ("Bridesmaids"), Jeff Garlin ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") and George Segal ("Just Shoot Me")

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.

In the premiere episode, "The Circle of Driving," Barry wakes on his birthday expecting to get a car, but is disappointed at the kitchen table when Beverly says that he's not ready for that responsibility and gives him something else that shocks him. Pops complicates matters by giving Barry the car he wants, but Beverly instantly makes her father take the car back. Meanwhile, Adam seeks Pop's advice on his crush at the local diner, on "The Goldbergs," TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 (9:01-9:31 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
