Don’t the media and fans alike find the life of Adam Goldberg and his family fascinating? No, not  Adam Goldberg, played by Sean Giambrone in the show ‘The Goldbergs,' but the real Adam F. Goldberg who served as the inspiration behind the character.

Learn about Adam’s reaction when he had to share his family to the world.

Sharing His Family

An article in ‘Parade’ has reported Adam Goldberg’s views on writing a comedy based on his own family.

He has written and co-produced many films, series, and plays but never in 100 years would he have seen this coming. It started about a decade ago when he was randomly showing some of these videos to Producer Doug Robinson.

Adam liked them and said, “We’ll do this show when you’re ready.” and later, he showed it to a bunch in ABC.

Even when he had all the needed approval for the show, he felt awkward initially to develop the series because he was not ready to share his family to the world.

So, he decided to make some alterations to the show. He changed the name of the show too, ‘The Silvers.’ He also replaced his brother, Eric, in real life with the character ‘Erica’ who is the elder sister of Adam in the series. But eventually, "The Goldbergs', the original name, was considered the best.

The creators of The Goldbergs tried to come up with the nearest possible presentation of real-life Goldbergs through the show. They even included the real objects from Adam’s childhood and shown a glimpse from the original videos, which acted as inspirations.

By doubling down on authenticity, the showrunners also contacted the children in Adam’s life to star them as adult characters on the show.

But still, a suburban family isn’t that exciting as well -- so certain hypothetical activities also got included. Some episodes of the show were a direct result of the other writer's willingness to cover their life story.

Adam Goldberg Wife

No story got written focusing on the personal life of Adam Goldberg except the parts related to the show. His Wikipedia page states that his wife’s name is Sarah Goldberg, but it's yet to be verified.

However, an article in ‘Jewish Journal’ mentioned his wife is of Irish-Catholic descent. And we suppose that the article is talking about Sarah Goldberg. 

He had also stated in a section in ‘Hollywood history’ that he met his wife in a summer theatre program for high school students at Northwestern University when he was 16. 

If true, he is married to his high-school sweetheart, Sarah Goldberg. 

Behind His Net Worth

At an early age, Adam showed prowess in his art. At just 18 years old, he had more than 50 plays under his belt. And his plays were performed all around the country, including the Joseph Papp Theater, The Walnut Street Theater, The Tada! Theater, The Saint Marks Theater, The Greenwich Street Theater, the Illusion Theater, and the Sundance Playwrights Lab. 

He even grabbed an award for the Advancement in the Arts program for Playwriting in 1995. The award went by the named Anne M. Kaufman Endowment ARTS Awardee in the National Foundation. 

His play, One on One, became a finalist for the American Theater Critics Association’s 1997 Award. 

Then, his dramedy The Purple Heart, which was produced by the Institute for Arts and Education, won the first position in The Very Special Playwriting Award. It was performed at the John F. Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.

He began his TV career in 2001 when he wrote the screenplay of the telefilm ‘Area 52.' Since then, he has co-produced movies like ‘Daddy Day Camp,’ ‘The Comebacks’ and the series like ‘Still Standing.’

He is best known for his career as a writer. He has worked on big projects like the script of ‘How to Train Your Dragon,’ ‘Monsters Vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space’, ‘Aliens in the Attic’ and many other movies. He has also written many plays, but the most successful has been the 2011 FOX series, ‘Breaking In’ and ‘The Goldbergs.'

Adam is a very talented figure in the industry. Maybe this is the reason he has a staggering net worth of $10 million. To which he will add more since he has signed a multi-year contract with ABC leaving Sony, with whom his deal ended in June 2019.

Bio -- Family & Sister

Adam Goldberg was born as Adam Frederick Goldberg a day after April fool's in 1976, which probably explains his cheerful; and witty personality. He was brought up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania nearby Jenkintown. 

He came from a Jewish family of biological father, Murray, and mother, Beverly. His father, Murray Goldberg, was born on 25 September 1940, but he had an unfortunate death on 1 February 2008. His mother, Beverly, was born on 8 October 1943.

He has two more members in his family but no sister. His brothers, Barry and, Eric were always behind their brother, providing any support he ever needed.

His elder brother Eric was born on 18 August 1967, while his other brother Barry was born on 15 October 1969. 

For his education, Adam attended New York University. A talented fellow, he majored in Film and also in Dramatic writing from his university in 1998.

As for his measurements, he is a giant of a man soaring over 6 feet and 3 inches (1.9 m). And being a family man, he does have some weight on him.
