Season 1

About a Boy is an American single-camera television sitcom developed by Jason Katims as an adaptation of the 1998 novel of the same title by Nick Hornby, in which successful songwriter and bachelor Will Freeman lives a carefree life as the "ultimate man-child" until his perfect world is turned upside down when single mother Fiona and her 11-year-old son Marcus move in next door.

Will Freeman (David Walton, Bent, Perfect Couples) lived a charmed existence in San Francisco. After writing a hit song, he was granted a life of free time, free love and freedom from financial woes. He's single, unemployed and loving it.

So imagine his surprise when Fiona (Minnie Driver, The Riches), a needy single mom and her oddly charming 11-year-old son, Marcus (Benjamin Stockham, 1600 Penn), move in next door and disrupt his perfect world.

When Marcus begins dropping by his home unannounced, Will's not so sure about being a kid's new best friend. But before he realises it, Will starts to enjoy the visits and even finds himself looking out for the kid. In fact, this newfound friendship teaches him a thing or two that he never imagined possible - about himself and caring for others.

The series also stars Al Madrigal (Gary Unmarried) as Will's best friend Andy, a thoroughly whipped stay-at-home dad.

Katims, Tim Bevan (Les Misérables, About a Boy), Eric Fellner (Les Misérables, About a Boy), Liza Chasin (Les Misérables, About a Boy), Robert De Niro (About a Boy, Meet the Parents) and Jane Rosenthal (About a Boy, Meet the Parents) serve as executive producers.

About a Boy is a production of Universal Television, Working Title Films, True Jack Productions and Tribeca Productions.
