Chaotic family ‘The Goldbergs’ join E4
US comedy series The Goldbergs is to air in the UK on E4 in 2015.
Based on creator Adam F. Goldberg’s own childhood, the 23×30 series, set in 1980’s Pennsylvania focuses on the The Goldberg Family, headed up by Wendi McLendon-Covey and Jeff Garlin as overbearing mum Beverly and hothead dad Murray.
Their children include 11 year-old Adam (Sean Giambrone) and his trusty video camera who documents the reality of being a Goldberg; Bossy older sister, Erica (Hayley Orrantia), and Barry ‘middle-child’ Goldberg played by Troy Gentile. Al ‘Pops’ Solomon (George Segal) completes the clan as a less than traditional grandfather whose behaviour rivals that of the most rebellious teenager. Patton Oswalt narrates the series as the adult Adam Goldberg.
The Goldbergs is produced by Adam F. Goldberg, Seth Gordon and Doug Robinson for X in association with Sony Pictures Television.
