Will Freeman (David Walton, "Bent," "Perfect Couples") lives a charmed existence. 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, "Good Will Hunting," "Grosse Pointe Blank"), 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, until, of course, Will discovers that women find single dads irresistible. That changes everything and a deal is struck: Marcus will pretend to be Will's son and, in return, Marcus is allowed to chill at Will's house, play ping-pong and gorge on steaks, something his very vegan mom would never allow. Before he realizes it, Will starts to enjoy the visits and even finds himself looking out for the kid. In fact, this newfound friendship may very well teach him a thing or two that he never imagined possible - about himself and caring for others.

Taken from the feature movie with Hugh Grant
the idea was good enough for a movie, but will that be enough for a season. there’a lot to expect here and it will be on the shoulders of the writers as the actors are good enough to pull anything through. I loved bent; I just wished they’d gone on a little longer. wait and see...
Humorous - Give it a try!
Laugh out loud funny! I just saw the pilot episode on TV and I really liked it. The boy, Marcus, is a delight. While series beginnings can be rough, I think this has room to grow into a humorous, touching comedy. I see people are passing judgement on the show before they've even seen it, which is unfair and just plain wrong. Give this show a chance - maybe it will make you laugh. It's definitely better than a lot of the reality shows on TV right now. Four stars because I've only seen one episode so far. And who really cares about Hugh Grant? He was in the movie - this is a TV series.
Love this lead actor! Really looking forward to this premier!
