About The Wonder Years

 

The Wonder Years is inspired by the original 1988 series which goes by the same name. The latest episode of this series nabbed a 0.3 demo rating and 1.80 million total viewers. The series revolves around the point of view of imaginative 12-year-old Dean, as he navigates growing up in a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama, and friendship, laughter and lessons learned along the way.

The First Season is loud, funny, and demonstrates cultural relevancy. Don Cheadle has nailed it by narrating the series as adult Dean Williams. The series is produced by Fred Savage, Mark Velez and Lee Daniels.
