Show Summary

Based on the 1989 film of the same name, 'Parenthood' is a 45-minute long comedy-drama produced by Jason Katims, Ron Howard, and Brian Grazer. The show depicts the modern challenges of raising a family in this post-technological world, addressing issues that affect both children and parents. The Braverman "clan" depicts three generations with patriarch Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) and matriarch Camille (Bonnie Bedelia) adjusting to their empty nest as their four adult children form their own families.

Sarah (Lauren Graham) is the eldest daughter and has two children with an ex-husband who periodically appears. Crosby (Dax Shepard) is the youngest son and learns he has a son with Jasmine (Joy Bryant). Finally, Julia (Erika Christensen) is the youngest child and has two children with her husband Joel (Sam Jaeger). The show has captivated audience with a deeply connected and personable cast and emotionally-driven, realistic storylines touching on all aspects of family life.

The show has 10 wins and 18 nominations. In 2013, Monica Potter won a Best Supporting Actress in a Drama award from the Critics Choice TV Awards. The show has also been nominated for a Golden Globe and for a Primetime Emmy.

  • To counteract the bigots

    Just wanted to put a review here to counteract the bigots. Being gay is not a "lifestyle", and there are many families out there thrilled to see some gay characters on the show. This show is funny, it has heart, and I adore it!
  • Losing a viewer

    The gay girls really a turn off. Show was great without this! You had the perfect exciting family show! Totally ruined that!
  • The Waltons in the 22nd century.

    This is an outstanding family show. It shows the day to day obsticles that today's family typically runs into; much like the Walton family did in the 70's. I enjoy the various sub-plots that each cast memeber brings to the series. Is the good girl really bad and the bad really Is there really another woman in dad's past? Ron Howard continues to deliver good quality TV for the entire family to watch. I hope this series continues for many years to come; I can't wait for the Christmas special; see how many tears this show can bring to my eyes...

    4/2//14 update: please keep this show coming!!moreless
  • Losing a faithful viewer

    Parenthood was my family's favorite show until the finale last week. If you are going to shove the gay lifestyle down our throats like so many other shows are doing (that we also quit watching) we won't be returning to your show next season!!!! That storyline is not necessary for this show to be a success!
  • Loss of a weekly fan.

    My wife an I watch the show faithfully every week. if something comes up we record it. But the writers have finally gone to far as it is no longer about family but about lifestyles. Why couldn't you just focus on the family instead of going outside of their lives I guess their imaginations couldn't or is the sponsors forcing us to accept their idea of what is right. I have always believed in live and let live and I believe each of us in the end have to answer for or lives but I am tired of having things shoved down my throat by television shows. It was a really good show with a great cast.moreless
