Following yesterday's announcement that The Big Bang Theory would be teaming up with Lucasfilm for a Star Wars themed episode, it has been announced that ABC sitcom, The Goldbergs will also be getting the Lucasfilm treatment. The episode will air on May 6th, (to tie in with the May the 4th be with you event) and is titled A Wrestler Named Goldberg. According to The Hollywood Reporter,
"As part of the tie-in, Lucasfilm partnered with studio Sony Pictures Television and ABC for the May 6 episode titled "A Wrestler Named Goldberg." Lucasfilm will help promote the episode in the lead-up to the broadcast. The episode sees Adam (Sean Giambrone) and Erica (Hayley Orrantia) encounter elaborately costumed Star Wars fans, including Reno 911's Thomas Lennon, while waiting in line at the Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi opening."
It's interesting to see Lucasfilm doing these tie-ins with sitcoms for May the 4th. I have never watched The Goldbergs, but this just might give me the incentive to sit down and watch an episode.
