About a Boy
Sure, it's already been made into a movie, but that's absolutely no reason that "About a Boy" can't be a great television series. The series has been created by Jason Katims who has already done great work on television series that once were films (see "Parenthood" and "Friday Night Lights"). Jon Favreau is also on board as an executive producer and directed the pilot. The show stars David Walton, Benjamin Stockham, Al Madrigal, Annie Mumolo, and MInnie Driver. Oh, did we mention that Robert De Niro is also one of the executive prducers? Because he is.
