‘The Goldbergs’ Spinoff Picked Up as Pilot by ABC

Adam F. Goldberg will EP new ’90s-set comedy about two high school teachers in Philadelphia

ABC has ordered a pilot for Adam F. Goldberg’s ’90s-set spinoff of his hit sitcom “The Goldbergs,” the network announced Thursday.

The new single-camera series follows two Philadelphia high school teachers who become unlikely father figures to their students.

Goldberg wrote the script alongside “The Goldbergs” executive producer Marc Firek, who will also serve as an EP on the new series.

Doug Robinson and Seth Gordon of Happy Madison Productions will also serve as executive producers.

There is not cast attached at this point.

ABC has found reliable performers in its comedy series in recent seasons, including “The Goldbergs,” which leads a Wednesday night comedy block at 8 p.m. ET.
