Promo Videos for ‘Parenthood’

March may seem like a long ways off, but its closer than you think, and it’s when NBC will finally roll out their new dramedy Parenthood which stars Craig T Nelson, Bonnie Bedelia, Lauren Graham, and funnyman Dax Shepherd, just to name a few. Below is an overview of Parenthood as well as some new promotional clips of the show.

daxshepherd“Parenthood” is a one-hour drama inspired by the box-office comedy hit of the same name. This re-imagined and updated NBC Universal Media Studios/Imagine Television production introduces audiences to the very large, very colorful and imperfect Braverman family.

The dynamic star-studded cast includes Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Craig T. Nelson, Dax Shepard, Bonnie Bedelia, Monica Potter and Erika Christensen.

Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham, “Gilmore Girls”), a financially strapped single mother, brings us into the fold of her parents and siblings who will make us laugh and cry, and on occasion, both at the same time. When we meet Sarah she 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.

On the home front, Sarah is greeted by her larger-than-life headstrong father, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson, “Family Stone,” “Coach”), and Camille (Bonnie Bedelia, “Heart Like A Wheel”), her pillar-of-strength mother, who are privately dealing with their own marital issues. Meanwhile, Sarah’s sister and complete antithesis Julia (Erika Christensen, “Traffic”), a successful corporate attorney, can’t jump off the fast track long enough to be as good a mother to her five-year-old daughter, Sydney (Savannah Rae, “House”), and wife to her husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger, “Eli Stone”), as she so deeply wants to be.

While commitment-phobe Crosby (Dax Shepard, “Baby Mama”), Sarah’s younger brother, contends with accepting adult responsibility, it’s Adam (Peter Krause, “Six Feet Under”), the oldest Braverman sibling, who must relinquish his preconceived expectations about what constitutes a “normal” family when he, his wife Kristina (Monica Potter, “Trust Me”), and teenage daughter, Haddie (Sarah Ramos, “American Dreams”), finally realize that their eccentric son and Haddie’s little brother, Max (Max Burkholder, “Brother and Sisters”), may actually be suffering from a severe disability. Although each sibling and family has their own share of life to grapple with, perhaps this reunion is the push they need to help each other pick up the pieces and focus on the everyday challenges that modern families face while raising children and starting over.

Serving as executive producers are Oscar winners Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind,” “Frost/Nixon”), and Jason Katims (“Friday Night Lights”), who wrote the pilot episode. Emmy winner Thomas Schlamme (“The West Wing”) is the director and executive producer of the pilot. “Parenthood” is from Imagine Television and Universal Media Studios.
