Peter Krause (Adam) explains that what makes Parenthood so powerful is that it rings so true. Watch now >
Adam is the firstborn Braverman child and, in many ways, the glue that holds this large and colorful family together. He'd walk through fire for any one of them, and they know it, which is why they constantly seek out his advice and help. On the surface Adam is affable, humane and dependable. But scratch that surface and you'll discover a high-strung and neurotic lunatic driven beyond reason to have a normal, happy family. Working in a corporate environment, Adam contends with cold-blooded colleagues and ambitious underlings. But his greatest challenge will always be at home as he and wife Kristina struggle to raise their son Max, a sensitive kid who proves to be more of a handful than most eight year olds, and Haddie, their increasingly willful teenage daughter.
