Show Description

Father knows best ... well, sort of.... In this single-camera comedy based on Justin Halpern's best-selling semi-autobiographical book I Suck at Girls, a man becomes a "dad," and his son becomes a man, in a time before "coming of age" was something you could Google. Christopher Meloni stars as Jack Dunlevy, a no-BS, ex-military oncologist who went to work early, came home late and rarely saw his family. But now that his wife, Joanne, is returning to law school, Jack's becoming a full-time parent for the first time. With his 15-year-old son, Frankie, just starting high school and not entirely sure of himself, Jack is there to pick up the pieces and guide him to manhood -- with the least gentle hand possible. Even more alien to Jack is his super-smart and smoking-hot teenage daughter, Rachel -- whose mind is firmly beyond his (or anyone's) comprehension. In addition to his own kids, Jack keeps a watchful eye on Frankie's best friends, George and Mikey. Only time will tell if Jack's unorthodox parenting will keep his kids on track, but as someone used to battling cancer for his patients, how hard could it be? When problems arise, Jack's got this. Right?
