New Television Show To Examine Rarely Discussed Years Between 1980 And 1989

BURBANK, CA—According to sources, ABC’s new family comedy The Goldbergs is ambitiously aiming to somehow bring the oft-forgotten, seldom referenced decade of the 1980s, in which the series is set, back into the zeitgeist. “As a culture, America has rarely looked back on the years between 1980 and 1989 in a nostalgic or playful way—in fact, I’m not sure such an act of tongue-in-cheek retrospection has ever been attempted—but The Goldbergs is apparently attempting to do just that,” said network spokesperson Jonah Levitt about the show that follows the exploits of the Goldberg family—including an overprotective mother, her husband, and their three children—but audaciously takes place during the little spoken-of and rarely joked-about decade that preceded the 1990s. “Viewers will come to love the Goldberg family as they learn life lessons, all the while bringing light to this previously unexplored era of outdated fashions and synthesizer-based pop music.” At press time, viewers were reportedly amazed to hear that time had not lapsed directly from December 31, 1979 to January 1, 1990.


'The Goldbergs' premieres Tuesday, September 24 at 9|8c on ABC.
