Adam F. Goldberg, creator of ‘The Goldbergs,’ based the show on his own life. He says that his real family members weren’t that bad — they were worse.
ABC exec Paul Lee was asked if ‘The Goldbergs’ needs to become more specifically Jewish. Let’s just say hes’s not demanding a bar mitzvah on the hit show.
