In an original drama from ABC Family airing in encore episodes on the ABC Television Network, �Kyle XY� follows the surprising journey of a 16-year-old teenage savant who emerges mysteriously from the woods one day with no apparent memory of who he is or where he�s been. In a youth detention center, Kyle, as he comes to be called, falls under the care of a psychologist who quickly realizes that the boy needs more special attention, and so takes him home to live temporarily with her family. Soon they all begin to understand that Kyle has some very unique and uncanny abilities.
In the premiere episode, �Pilot,� Kyle�s mysterious journey begins when he walks out of the forest and onto the city streets.
