Synopsis

The summer of 1994 was magical – Snoop Dogg was climbing the charts, Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed on the knee and 32-year-old Glen Abbott was finally on his way to becoming a man.

Back in 1994, when the series begins, Glen is still living a sheltered life with his parents when the only girl he’d ever kissed, Alison McKellar, returns to town with her 13-year-old son Josh.

The recently divorced Alison inspires Glen to become a grown-up and win her heart.

There may be hope for late-bloomers everywhere as Glen moves through his formative years a mere 20 years later than most. But, hey, some people’s "Wonder Years" just happen a little later.

Luckily, Glen doesn’t have to go through this awkward period alone. He becomes best friends with Josh – a fellow hypochondriac and the only person he can truly relate to – and receives parental advice from his enabling mother Irene and quasi-rage-aholic dad Ron.

Narrated by present-day Glen, this coming-of-middle-age story proves that an unlikely underdog can eventually transform from fear-riddled underachiever to the richest man in Buffalo.
