Jenkintown Family Featured In Hit Sitcom
By Brad Segall
NORRISTOWN, Pa. (CBS) – A prominent Montgomery County business family will be featured on tonight’s episode of the popular TV sitcom “The Goldbergs.”
When the Kremps moved onto Newbold Road in Jenkintown nearly four decades ago across the street from the Goldbergs, little did they know Adam Goldberg would one day create a TV series. Camcorders were new and he would spend his time videotaping the family in the early 80’s.
Chad Kremp, third generation at Kremp Florist in Willow Grove was Adam’s close friend.
“It was one of our hobbies. Just, you know making little snippets, little commercials, TV shows and things, just the two of us, whether it’s filming his family or he’d be at my house and we’d be filming at my house.”
He says the episode is titled “The Kremps.” Actors will play his family members although some will make cameo appearances. He says it’s exciting to see his longtime friend make it on prime time TV. They plan a viewing party at their Jenkintown home. The Goldbergs no longer live across the street.
