The Boomerang Kid follows Adam Blum, a 23-year-old college graduate who does what every college graduate does once they earn a BA in Communications and Journalism: moves back in with his parents. It has now been over a year and Adam always seems to be in the same exact position – slumped on his parent’s couch, ear buds in his ears, eyes glued to his laptop. Adam’s parents try their best to motivate him with everything from guilt to over-diagnosing his problems, but it takes using a fake JDate profile to catfish a nice Jewish girl over to the house to see that there’s more to Adam than his parents realized.
Adam Blum: male, 18-30. Adam has the look of a lazy millennial, but he works hard; just not on the things he cares about. Adam is guarded and often skeptical of any new situation, but he is also deeply sarcastic and has a dry wit that surprises people.
Bonnie Blum (Adam’s mother): female, 45-65. Bonnie is your typical Jewish mother – neurotic, overprotective, and shamelessly unfiltered. She’s loud, funny, intrusive and will love you so much it hurts. She knows how to lay on the guilt, and she always has leftovers to give you.
Sam Blum (Adam’s father): male, 45-65. Sam is used to getting talked over by his much louder wife, Bonnie, and yet he seems perfectly content with his role in the family. Sam counters his wife’s anxiety with a much more happy-go-lucky attitude in life. He is also a quiet counterpart to his wife’s larger than life personality. He always seems to keep a level head, and while he will expose the flaws in Bonnie’s outrageous schemes, he won’t actually stop her from carrying them out.
