Parenthood: SEASON PREMIERE SEPT 25 | On Thursdays 10:00 pm. Parenthood is a one-hour drama inspired by the box office hit of the same name. The show follows the trials and tribulations of the very large, very colorful and imperfect Braverman family. Sarah Braverman is a financially strapped single mother trying to raise two teenaged kids, the bright but rebellious Amber, and sullen and sensitive Drew. On the home front, Sarah and her kids live with Sarah's larger-than-life, headstrong father, Zeek, and pillar-of-strength mother Camille, who are dealing with their own marital issues. Meanwhile, Sarah's sister and complete antithesis, Julia is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her loving but increasingly restless stay-at-home husband, Joel. Commitment-phobe Crosby, Sarah's younger brother, is helping raise a five-year-old son he had out of wedlock with former flame Jasmine. However, it's Adam, the oldest Braverman sibling, who has had to relinquish his expectations about what constitutes a "normal" family, as he, his quietly forceful wife Kristina and independent-minded teenage daughter Haddie, struggle to cope with their eccentric son and Haddie's little brother Max, who has Asperger's Syndrome. Although each sibling and family has its own share of everyday challenges to grapple with, they still manage to be there for each other in their hours of need.
