Coming to NBC: Parenthood

by at . Comments

In the spring of 2010, viewers can look froward to Parenthood. Executive producers Ron Howard, Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind), and Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights) bring us a colorful and imperfect family: the Bravermans.

The cast of Parenthood, which follows the lives of four grown siblings, and their own parents and children, includes Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Craig T. Nelson, Dax Shepard, Bonnie Bedelia, Monica Potter, Erika Christensen and Mae Whitman.

In NBC's answer to Brothers & Sisters, the premise of the show is the return of Sarah Braverman (Graham), a financially strapped single mom, to her home in Berkeley after packing up her Fresno apartment and uprooting her two inconvenienced kids.

There, she's greeted by an opinionated father, Zeek (Nelson), and a strong mother, Camille (Bedelia), who are dealing with their own marital issues, and is reunited with her three also struggling siblings Julia (Christensen), Crosby (Shepard) and Adam (Krause).

Here's a preview of Parenthood ...

Parenthood Quotes

Amber, you know, I was two years in Viet Nam. Do you know what I thought about, what I dreamt about? Coming home, having a family, having grandkids. I dreamt you, Amber. And Haddie, and Drew, and Sydney and Max. We almost lost ya Amber. You've had some bad breaks. You're not feeling good about yourself. You didn't get into Berkeley? Well boo friggin who. You got to suck it up girl, you're a Braverman. You got my blood in your veins. If you ever do something like this again, if you even think of doing something like this again, I will kick your little butt all the way from here to the Golden Gate Bridge. You do not have my permission to mess with my dreams. Are we clear?

Zeek

Joel: When have you not thought clearly?
Julia: Two years ago. I was not thinking clearly. I was pretty much unraveling. You left.
Joel: K. That's not going to happen again.
Julia: Good. But... I can't tell you that it won't happen again, that I'll be... I don't know, I know that I was hard to live with. I realize that it was rough.
Joel: Honey, I'll tell you this as many times as you need me to. I will never leave you again. I will never leave you.
