ABC's Adam F. Goldberg pilot making offers to writers

ABC‘s untitled Adam F. Goldberg single- camera comedy pilot, has started to make offers to writers, a sign it’s about to be picked up.

 Formerly “How the F Am I Normal,” the pilot is written by Goldberg and will be directed by Seth Gordon.

The project (referred to in some places as “The Goldbergs”), inspired by Goldberg’s experience growing up with a dysfunctional but loving family, is a family comedy set in the ’80s (like Goldberg’s childhood) that centers on an overbearing mother and short- tempered father who love their three eccentric kids so much, they can’t take them grow up.

Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids,” “Reno 911”) will play Beverly Gold, a committed mother and a super- emotional shopaholic with boundary issues and a loud mouth (think Marie Barone on “Everybody Loves Raymond”). Jeff Garlin, George Segal, Darien Provost and Troy Gentil will also star.

The project was given an early pilot order last month following scoring a production commitment when it moved to ABC from Fox last fall. The project was originally set up at Fox last season.

ABC passed on several pilots yesterday, and is expected to start handing out series orders today.
