Gallery: Adam F. Goldberg’s Real Life Childhood Home Looks Nothing Like its TV Counterpart

The hit ABC series, which debuted in 2013, is based upon the childhood of creator Adam F. Goldberg, who grew up amongst a spirited family in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania in the 1980s. Most storylines are taken directly from Adam’s youth, culled from countless hours of home video footage he taped of his parents and two siblings on his ever-present RCA camcorder over the years. Though Adam did change the gender of the oldest Goldberg child for the show – Eric became Erica (played by Hayley Orrantia), as he thought adding a girl to the mix would enhance the family dynamic – otherwise, “The Goldbergs” sticks very close to real life.
