Parenthood Cast

Series Description

The Parenthood TV show is a 60 minute family drama series that premiered on March 2, 2010 on NBC. It's inspired by the hit 1989 movie of the same name starring Steve Martin, Mary Steenburgen, Jason Robards, Keanu Reeves, Joaquin Phoenix and a bevy of other stars. While the movie was mainly comedy with dramatic moments, the TV series concentrates more on the challenges of four siblings dealing with the raising of their children in Berkeley, California. The Bravermans may all have grown up together but they've evolved into very different adults and their approaches to child rearing are also varied. Each has different abilities and each has different problems that affect their parents and their children.

Parenthood Theme Song Lyrics

Title: "Forever Young"

Written and Performed By: "Bob Dylan"

May god bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every run
And May you stay, forever young

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you

May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
And may you stay, forever young

May you stay forever young

Parenthood Trivia

Someone is wearing plaid in every scene but sometimes you really have to look to find it.

In nearly every episode, someone cooks either pancakes or waffles.

Helen Hunt ("Mad About You") was in the running for the role of Sarah but she and the producers couldn't reach an agreement on her salary.

Max Burkholder and Mae Whitman play cousins on Parenthood but they previously played brother and sister on the show "In Treatment".

Often when a producer or a star of a TV series goes on to other projects, they want to work again with people they got to know on the previous show. Jason Katims was the Executive Producer on "Friday Night Lights" and he has brought several cast members from that series to guest star or appear in recurring roles on Parenthood including Michael B. Jordan, Minka Kelly, Matt Lauria, Angela Rawna and Jeff Rosick.

Before deciding to use Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" as the theme song for Parenthood, Andrew McMahon of Jack's Mannequin wrote a theme song titled "Casting Lines" for the show but when he gave it to the producers they told him they had decided to go with Dylan's tune.
