The CW has aquired the rights to air Seed here in the US. It’s a half-hour comedy that premiered in Canada in February and has become the City network’s highest-rated original comedy to date.
Seed follows the life of Harry Dacosta (Adam Korson), a single, underachieving bachelor and bartender who’s also been a sperm donor. He reluctantly finds himself entangled in the lives of his new-found children and their less-than-thrilled families. They include a laid-back lesbian couple with a nine-year-old son, a neurotically hopeful single mom-to-be, and an uptight, upper-class family with a rebellious teenage daughter.
The cast also includes Carrie-Lynn Neales, Amanda Brugel, Stephanie Anne Mills, Laura De Carteret, Matt Baram, Vanessa Matsui, Abby Ross, and William Ainscough.
The CW plans to start airing the 13 episode first season later this year. Seed has already been renewed for a second season in Canada.
