DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, May 2014) Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up and peanut allergies, there was a simpler time called the '80s. For geeky young 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 more yelling. Mom Beverly (Wendi McClendon-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, sometimes oblivious but with good intentions. Sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is 17, popular, terrifying and not one to mess with. Barry (Troy Gentile) is 16, an overly emotional teen with mad rap skills. Adam is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director with a love of all things "nerdy."
