    Adapted by Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood) from the 1998 best-selling novel of the same name written by Nick Hornby, About a Boy is actually about two boys… a man who hasn’t grown up and a child. After penning a hit song, Will Freeman (David Walton, Bent, New Girl) lives in clover. This golden boy is single, unemployed and loving it. His perfect world is turned upside down when Fiona Bowa (Minnie Driver, The X-Files, Will & Grace), a needy single mom, and her strangely charming 11-year-old son, Marcus (Benjamin Stockham, Criminal Minds, Rizzoli & Isles), move in next door.

    Soon, Marcus makes a habit of dropping by Will’s home unannounced. The latter doesn’t feel too good about it, until he discovers that women find single dads irresistible. Without hanging in the balance, Will uses Marcus as date bait. In turn, the youngster blackmails the lady killer into spending time with him. However, Fiona, a vegan and a very strict parent, has her claws in her new neighbor. Marcus is very close to his mom, who raised him all by herself since he was a tomtit. Still, at school, he isn’t quite popular, often being a target for ridicule. Naturally, with the lapse of time, Will gets to like Marcus, feels bad for using him and steps up to help him. As it happens, Andy (Al Madrigal, Gary Unmarried, Wizards of Waverly Place), Will’s best friend, thinks that raising a child is the greatest honor a person can have. Once a DJ, Andy is now a stay-at-home dad of three. In the meantime, his wife, Laurie (Annie Mumolo, Modern Family, Rake), is the breadwinner.

    It’s funny. It’s sweet. It’s About a Boy…
