If couples-comedies were the recent TV trend, manly-comedies may be the next big thing. ABC Has Man Up and Last Man Standing and coming to CBS’ primetime line-up is How To Be A Gentleman, a comedy about a man trying to adjust his polite demeanor in order to be a “real man.”
Is being a gentleman a thing of the past? That seems to be what How to be a Gentleman is suggesting or at the very least, exploring in this new comedy, which stars David Hornsby and Kevin Dillon. From CBS’ synopsis below, the humor and hopefully, the best of the story will come from Hornsby and Dillon’s characters’ clashing behavior. I’m of the opinion that Kevin Dillon has always been the funniest and most entertaining aspect of HBO’s Entourage, so I’ll be checking this one out when it premieres next fall. Victory!!!
Here’s CBS’ synopsis for the show and a behind the scenes look at the series...
HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN, inspired by the book of the same name, is a comedy about the unlikely friendship between a traditional, refined writer and an unrefined personal trainer. Andrew Carlson (David Hornsby) is an etiquette columnist whose devotion to ideals from a more civilized time has lead to a life detached from modern society.
How To Be A Gentleman will air on Thursday (8:30-9 p.m..) on CBS starting Fall 2011.
