Season 1

Man Up! is an American television sitcom created by Christopher Moynihan which revolves around the lives of three guys with questionable childish behaviour and lifestyles who decide it's time to do the one thing they had forgotten to do: act like real men. But they need to grow up a little before that can happen, even at their age.

The series aired in the USA on ABC from 18 October to 6 December, 2011. There are 13 half-hour episodes in the series, although only eight aired in the USA.

Man Up! originally aired in South Africa on M-Net and DStv's M-Net HD channel from 2 March to 25 May, 2012, on Fridays at 18h00. It later aired on DStv's Vuzu channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

The series premiered on Vuzu on Wednesday 7 November 2012, at 22h30. New episodes broadcast on Mondays and Wednesdays at the same time.

Synopsis

Will Keen's grandfather fought in WWII. Will's father fought in Vietnam. Will plays Call of Duty on his PlayStation 3 and uses non-dairy hazelnut creamer. So what happened to all the real men?

They're still here - they just smell like pomegranate body wash now.

Meet Will (Mather Zickel). His evolved, sensitive nature is why his awesome wife Theresa (Teri Polo) married him. But Will and his friends find themselves wondering - in a world of body spray and manscaping - what does it really mean to be a guy anymore?

Will is more interested in finding the perfect gift for his son Nathan's (Jake Johnson) 13th birthday than in doing his job selling insurance, sensitive soul Craig (Christopher Moynihan) still pines for his college ex Lisa, and Kenny (Dan Fogler) clamps down on his anger and asks himself "What would Tobey Maguire do?" when his ex Brenda (Amanda Detmer) starts seeing a guy who is everything he's not (Henry Simmons).

And though it may not come naturally, each new day brings these lovable beta males another opportunity to Man Up and be like their forefathers.

In the vein of The Hangover, Man Up! is the virile new comedy from writer/producer/actor Christopher Moynihan (100 Questions), executive producer Victor Fresco (Better off Ted), and director Beth McCarthy-Miller (SNL, 30 Rock), that follows the struggles of three modern male archetypes as they search for their identities and try to prove that "real men" really can use hazelnut creamer.
