Parenthood Season 1


Lauren Graham stars in Parenthood as Sarah Braverman, mother of 2 teenage children, Amber and Drew, both a handful. According to her character bio, she is 38 and a little disappointed with her life. She “thought she’d have more to her name than a deadbeat rocker ex-husband and a car she not-so-affectionately refers to as ‘The Crapmobile’.” Her life in shambles and her kids “not reaching their full potential,” Sarah moves back in with Mom and Dad so her kids can have a new start. And her too. See the Season 1 Gallery here.
