Parenthood :The Braverman family gathers for Jasmine and Crosby’s unnamed newborn. Kristina and Adam adapt to life after her cancer ordeal , while Hank moves back to town and, unknown to Sarah, gets back together with Amber.
Parenthood 5X1 : Parenthood is a one-hour drama inspired by the box office hit of the same name; it follows the trials and tribulations of the very large, very colorful and imperfect Braverman family. Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham) is a financially strapped single mother trying to raise two teenaged kids, the bright but rebellious Amber (Mae Whitman), and sullen and sensitive Drew (Miles Heizer). On the home front, Sarah and her kids live with Sarah’s larger-than-life, headstrong father, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson), and pillar-of-strength mother Camille (Bonnie Bedelia), who are dealing with their own marital issues. Meanwhile, Sarah’s sister and complete antithesis, Julia (Erika Christensen) is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her loving but increasingly restless stay-at-home husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger). Commitment-phobe Crosby (Dax Shepard), Sarah’s younger brother, is helping raise a five-year-old son he had out of wedlock with former flame Jasmine (Joy Bryant). However, it’s Adam (Peter Krause), the oldest Braverman sibling, who has had to relinquish his expectations about what constitutes a “normal” family, as he, his quietly forceful wife Kristina (Monica Potter) and independent-minded teenage daughter Haddie (Sarah Ramos), struggle to cope with their eccentric son and Haddie’s little brother Max (Max Burkholder), 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.
