The T.V. Show of the Week for May 3rd-9th is the Goldbergs. The Goldbergs is an American television sitcom that premiered on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 on ABC. The series was created by Adam F. Goldberg and stars Wendi McLendon-Covey and Jeff Garlin. The show is produced by Goldberg, Seth Gordon, and Doug Robinson. It is loosely based on Goldberg’s family in the 1980s, complete with a childhood version of himself. The Goldbergs is set in the 1980s in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, but is filmed in Southern California. The show is loosely based on the show runner’s own childhood, during which he videotaped events, many of which are re-enacted throughout the program. The series stars Jeff Garlin as patriarch Murray and Wendi McLendon-Covey as his wife, Beverly. Their two older children are Erica (Hayley Orrantia) and Barry (Troy Gentile). The youngest child, Adam (Sean Giambrone), documents his family life with his video camera, while the present-day “Adult Adam” narrates every episode as taking place in “1980-something.” Beverly’s father, Albert “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), is frequently around to provide advice or to help out his grandchildren (often behind his daughter’s back).
