'About a Boy'
"About a Boy" is, of course, based on Nick Hornby's novel and the film of the same name and comes from Jason Katims, who knows a thing or two about movie-to-TV adaptations from "Friday Night Lights" and "Parenthood." Jon Favreau directed the pilot, which focuses on man-child Will (David Walton) whose life changes when he meets single-mom Fiona (Minnie Driver) and her 11-year-old son (Benjamin Stockton).
