Title card.

About a Boy is a television show adaption of the book About a Boy originally written by Nick Hornby. The show was first episode shown on 2014-02-02. The show stars David Walton as Will Freeman, Minnie Driver as Fiona Bowa, and Benjamin Stockham as Marcus Bowa. It lasted two seasons before it was put out of its misery.

I only watched the first two episodes and found the show to be awful. The source material has been hacked to pieces and only basic ideas of it were used in the show, but the biggest problem is, all the seriousness from the book was replaced with basic American situational comedy.
