What is the show about?
According to their site, “Parenthood is a one-hour drama inspired by the box-office hit of the same name (Directed by Howard in 1989 with Steve Martin). This re-imagined and updated production introduces audiences to the very large, very colorful and imperfect Braverman family. Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham, “Gilmore Girls”), a financially strapped single mother, is packing up her Fresno apartment and uprooting her two inconvenienced kids, Amber (Mae Whitman, “In Treatment”) and Drew (Miles Heizer, “ER”), to make a big move back home to Berkeley to be closer to her family… Meanwhile, Sarah’s sister and complete antithesis, Julia (Erika Christensen, “Traffic”) is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her stay-at-home husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger, “Eli Stone.”).”
