The Goldbergs and Schooled Wiki
Real Television

Basically, I had a show prior, and the show was cancelled, and I was trying to figure out what to do, and, Doug [is my producer], -- this was years ago, like seven years ago, and Doug said it's time we take out your family show. So, it was really Doug's idea, and I had kids, I was now a parent, I had perspective, and that was really it.

–Adam F. Goldberg on how The Goldbergs was formed.

Adam Frederick Goldberg (born April 2, 1976) is an American television and film producer and writer, best known as the creator and showrunner of the television series Breaking In and The Goldbergs, which is a biopic on his own childhood.

Goldberg's first comedy-writing job began in 2003 for the sitcom Still Standing, where he worked for four years and finished as a co-producer. After his first year on Still Standing, he teamed up with Picture Machine, Triggerstreet and college friend Kyle Newman to develop the screenplay for Fanboys. After a year, they sold it to The Weinstein Company. The screenplay ended up seventh on the 2005 Black List for most popular unproduced scripts of the year.


On the television side, Goldberg teamed up with Adam Sandler's production company Happy Madison to write four pilots for various networks. In 2010, Happy Madison introduced him to King of Kong director Seth Gordon and together they created the 2011 Fox comedy series Breaking In. The show was pitched as "The Office meets The A-Team" and, after a year of development, was picked up to series.
