PARENTHOOD from NBC – First Look

May 4, 2009 by  

Get to know NBC’s PARENTHOOD which will premiere in the Fall. Take a look and let us know if this is something you might be checking out come the Fall.

From the executive producers of the box-office hit “Parenthood” — Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (Oscar winners for “A Beautiful Mind”), and writer/executive producer Jason Katims (”Friday Night Lights”) — this contemporary re-imagining of the blockbuster film depicts the colorful and imperfect Braverman family — four grown siblings sharing the headaches, heartaches and joy of being parents. The star-studded cast includes Peter Krause, Maura Tierney, Craig T. Nelson, Dax Shepard, Bonnie Bedelia, Monica Potter, Erika Christensen and Sarah Ramos. When Sarah Braverman (Tierney, “ER”), a financially strapped single mother, returns home to her parents and siblings in Berkeley, Calif. after packing up her Fresno apartment and uprooting her two inconvenienced kids, Amber (Mae Whitman, “In Treatment”) and Drew (Miles Heizer, “ER”), she is greeted by her opinionated father, Zeek (Nelson, “Family Stone,” “Coach”), and strong mother, Camille (Bedelia, “Heart Like a Wheel”), who are privately dealing with their own marital issues. As Sarah is reunited with her siblings — sister, Julia (Christensen, “Traffic”), and brothers Crosby (Shepard, “Baby Mama”) and Adam (Krause, “Six Feet Under”) — all struggling with issues of their own, it’s clear that the Braverman reunion is just what they need to face the everyday challenges of modern family life. “Parenthood” is a production from Imagine Entertainment and Universal Media Studios. Emmy winner Thomas Schlamme (”The West Wing”) directs the pilot.

    Veddy veddy interesting. Ron Howard is amazing and its so fantastic to see him take on a new TV project. Both he and Jason Katims excell at writing/directing large ensemble casts. Plus, I adore Peter Krause– since the days of Sports Night. And Tommy Schlamme directed the pilot!?? I LOVE that guy. Okay, I’m tuning in for ep. 1 at least.

    Great people behind this show but it’s just so bland. It’s Sunday night material and only then could it keep an active audience. If they try to fit it in the fall it could be one of the second to go (100 Questions being the first). Too bad for Grazer/ Howard.
