"[A] sly behind-the-scenes TV movie..."
GROWING UP BRADY is Barry Williams' account of his 5-year stint playing eldest son Greg on the popular 1970s sitcom THE BRADY BUNCH. Based on Williams' memoirs, this biopic reveals the real-life dramas unfolding behind the scenes as Williams (played by THE O.C.'s Adam Brody) shares an offscreen romance with co-star Maureen McCormick (Kaley Cuoco) and a onetime date with TV-mom Florence Henderson (Rebeccah Bush). The film also documents the legendary battles between series creator Sherwood Schwartz (Michael Tucker) and classically-trained actor Robert Reed (Daniel Hugh Kelly), who wanted the frothy show to tackle more serious storylines. Brimming with the same lighthearted humor that made THE BRADY BUNCH a TV favorite, GROWING UP BRADY serves as an eye-opening chronicle of coming of age while struggling with the pressures of Hollywood stardom.
