Rachel Crow (The X Factor) and Summer Parker (Saints & Sinners) have each scored co-starring roles opposite Bryan Callen and Tim Meadows in the ABC untitled spinoff from the hit 19080s comedy The Goldbergs! The pilot is from creator/Executive Producer Adam F. Goldberg, Executive Producers Marc Firek, Happy Madison and Seth Gordon and Sony TV. Goldberg and Firek wrote the pilot with Jay Chandrasekhar directing.
Callen and Meadows will be reprising their roles from the original series and the spinoff will be set in the 1990s and follow two high school teachers who become unlikely father figures to the kids at their Philadelphia school, the same school Adam Goldberg (Sean Giambrone) graduated from. The comedy centers on Lucy Winston, a single mother of three who is given a job by her brother, Andre Glascott (Meadows), as an administrative secretary at the William Penn Academy, where her brother is the Head of School. At the top of the school year, her brother is in a power struggle with the infinitely energetic Coach Mellor (Callen), while Lucy is trying to deal with the ups and downs of her kids adjusting to their new school.
Crow will portray Lucy’s older daughter, Felicia Winston, a Doc Marten-wearing rebel who is forcibly moved from her old school to her uncle’s academy, after alcohol/drugs send her toward a downward spiral. Parker will play Lucy’s younger daughter, Gigi Winston, a quirky and clueless dork who is unaware of the “mean girls” making fun of her and eager to start fresh and make new friends at William Penn Academy.
Singer/actress Crow, is most-known as a finalist on the first season of The X Factor. She has since co-starred in Rio 2, as well as recorded a song for the film’s soundtrack.
