Adam Goldberg steps down as ‘Goldbergs’ showrunner


ABC’s The Goldbergs is getting a new showrunner. And it’s not Beverly Goldberg (played by Wendy Anne McLendon).

According to The Wrap, series creator Adam F. Goldberg, whose life the show is based on, is stepping down as showrunner ahead of the comedy’s upcoming seventh season.

The article says he will be replaced by executive producers Chris Bishop and Alex Barnow.

It seems Goldberg’s move was not completely unexpected as he left his deal at Sony Television (where The Goldbergs are produced) for a new deal at ABC Studios.

Bishop and Barnow, who have both been with the comedy since its debut, have individual deals with Sony that keep them at the studio through 2021.

Earlier this month, The Goldbergs spinoff series Schooled also saw a showrunner change, with The Kids Are Alright creator Tim Doyle taking over for series co-creator Marc Firek.

Goldberg will remain with the hit series as executive producer alongside Barnow, Bishop, Doug Robinson and Annette Davis.

The Goldbergs is produced by Happy Madison, Doug Robinson Productions and Adam F. Goldberg Productions, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

The series premieres on ABC September 25, at 8/7c.
