You and a guest will visit the set of NBC's hit show Parenthood in Los Angeles, California.
Based on the hit film, Parenthood follows the ups and downs of the very large, very colorful, and imperfect Braverman family. Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham, Gilmore Girls) 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 son live with Sarah's larger-than-life, headstrong father, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson, Family Stone, Coach), and pillar-of-strength mother Camille (Bonnie Bedelia, Heart Like a Wheel), who are dealing with their own marital issues. Amber has recently graduated and is learning to manage life away from home in her first apartment in a questionable environment.
Meanwhile, Sarah's sister and complete antithesis, Julia (Erika Christensen, Traffic) is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her loving but increasingly restless stay-at-home husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger, Eli Stone). In addition to their daughter Sydney (Savannah Paige Rae) they have recently adopted a young boy, Victor (Xolo Marideuna) which adds another level of love and complications to their lives.
Commitment-phobe Crosby (Dax Shepard, Baby Mama), Sarah's younger brother, has finally married former flame Jasmine (Joy Bryant Antwone Fisher) and he's finding married life and being Jabbar's (Tyree Brown) full time dad to be a challenging but wonderful life. However, it's Adam (Peter Krause, Six Feet Under), 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, Trust Me) 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. As Haddie goes off to college the Braverman's are blessed with a new baby, Nora. 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.
