Season 1

How to Be a Gentleman is an American sitcom created by and starring David Hornsby and adapted from the book of the same name by John Bridges which chronicles two former high school classmates, an uptight columnist and his more freewheeling, Iraq war veteran, trainer (as well as a former high school bully), as they renew a friendship that never really existed before.

The series aired in the USA on CBS from 29 September, 2011 to 23 June, 2012. There are nine half-hour episodes in one season.

How to Be a Gentleman premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Saturday 28 July 2012, at 17h30. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

How to Be a Gentleman, inspired by the book of the same name, is a comedy about the unlikely friendship between a traditional, refined writer and an unrefined personal trainer.

Andrew Carlson (David Hornsby) is an etiquette columnist whose devotion to ideals from a more civilized time has lead to a life detached from modern society.

Infectiously optimistic, Bert Lansing (Kevin Dillon) is a reformed "bad boy" from Andrew's past who inherited a fitness centre, but can still be rude, loud and sloppy.

When Andrew's editor, Jerry (Dave Foley), tells him to put a modern, sexy twist on his column or be fired, he hires Bert as a life coach in the hopes of learning to be less "gentle man" and more "real man."

Andrew's mom, Diane (Nancy Lenehan), and his bossy sister, Janet (Mary Lynn Rajskub), support the plan, as would Janet's husband, Mike (Rhys Darby), if he was allowed to have an opinion.

Though Andrew and Bert's views may be centuries apart, they may find they're each other's missing link.

David Hornsby (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Adam Chase (Friends), Ted Schachter (The Invention of Lying) are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.
