Six seasons of everything that you could think of that could happen to an extended family. Plenty of drama happens to the Braverman clan. Death, pregnancy, cancer, addiction, adoption, marriage, heartbreak, coming out, Asperger’s and aging parents. Phew! They will have you feeling, crying, laughing and pondering life. Never a dull moment as you follow the Bravermans through their anything but average lives.
The Braverman family could never be mistaken for your perfect family. Most of their lives are a mess or at the least quite trying. Grown siblings, Sarah (played by Lauren Graham), Adam (played by Peter Krause), Crosby (played by Dax Shepard), and Julia (played by Erika Christensen) and their mom Camille (played by Bonnie Bedelia) and dad Zeek (played by Craig T. Nelson) all attempt to juggle their relationships, families and careers while trying to stay connected as a family.
