KUSA - Based on the best-selling novel and movie, 'About a Boy' makes its debut on NBC Tuesday night.

The show stars David Walton as Will Freeman, a single, unemployed and immature guy. He wrote a hit song and is living off royalties.

Fiona (Minnie Driver) moves in next door with her son Marcus (Benjamin Stockham).

Marcus starts showing up at Will's house. Will is not thrilled at first, but when he sees that women like the idea of a single dad, Marcus starts to pretend to be Will's son.

Marcus and Will eventually develop a friendship and learn from each other.

About a Boy is the first comedy for writer and producer Jason Katims, who is known for 'Friday Night Lights' and 'Parenthood.'

About a Boy airs Tuesdays at 7 p.m. on NBC.
