"The family-friendly single-camera comedy has been generating great buzz...." - The Hollywood Reporter

"I love THE GOLDBERGS! This super '80s-tastic sitcom did what most this season couldn't: It actually made me laugh." - The Huffington Post

TORONTO, Sept. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - CTV welcomes a new family to the neighbourhood, THE GOLDBERGS, beginning today on CTV.ca. CTV announced today that the highly anticipated new comedy is now receiving an exclusive advance digital preview of the series premiere, before it joins CTV's incredible new Tuesday night lineup later this month. A loving but somewhat outlandish family, The Goldbergs are direct from the '80s - a time before parenting blogs, trophies for showing up, and peanut allergies.

"The digital preview is a great way to generate even more buzz for one of the most talked-about new comedies this fall," said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Programming, CTV Networks. " THE GOLDBERGS is a hilarious addition to CTV's new blockbuster Tuesday night lineup."   THE GOLDBERGS airs regularly on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, immediately following this year's most-anticipated new series, MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Both series are part of CTV's blockbuster Tuesday night lineup, also featuring family comedy TROPHY WIFE at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT and PERSON OF INTEREST at 10 p.m. ET/PT, all beginning Tuesday, Sept. 24 on CTV.

**Media Note** Photography for THE GOLDBERGS is available online at BellMediaPR.ca . Watch the exclusive advance digital screening HERE .

For geeky 11-year old Adam Goldberg ( Sean Giambrone), the '80s were his wonder years - and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy his family had to offer. Mom Beverly ( Wendi McLendon-Covey) is a classic "smother" - an overbearing, overprotective matriarch who rules this brood with 100% authority and zero sense of boundaries. Dad Murray ( Jeff Garlin) is a gruff, hot-tempered father who is learning how to parent without screaming after a recent health scareā€¦ and having little luck. Sister Erica ( Hayley Orrantia) is 17, hot, terrifying, and not one to mess with. Barry ( Troy Gentile) is 16, a grade-A spaz with a classic middle child syndrome. Adam is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director who's crushing on an older woman, 15-year-old Zoe. Rounding out the family is beloved grandfather Al "Pops" Solomon ( George Segal), the wild man of the clan and a shameless Don Juan who's schooling Adam in the ways of love.

New episodes of THE GOLDBERGS will also be available the day following its television broadcast across CTV's digital platforms, including CTV.ca, the CTV App, the CTV Mobile channel on Bell Mobile TV, and through video on demand partners such as Bell Fibe TV.

THE GOLDBERGS was written and executive-produced by Adam F. Goldberg (Breaking In, Fanboys) and also executive-produced by Doug Robinson and Seth Gordon. The pilot was directed by Seth Gordon ( Identity Thief, Horrible Bosses). THE GOLDBERGS is from Adam Sandler's production company, Happy Madison, and is produced by Sony Pictures Television.
