Description: Being �one of the guys� can mean a lot of great things: poker, pick-up softball games, watching sports or just hanging out at a favorite bar. But for PJ Franklin, played by Jordana Spiro (JAG, Must Love Dogs) in TBS�s original comedy series MY BOYS, being a girl who�s one of the guys can be challenging. This new half-hour comedy, from executive producers Betsy Thomas (Run of the House), Jamie Tarses and Gavin Polone (Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Gilmore Girls), explores what happens when an unabashed, sports-loving girl goes looking for romance. The series co-stars Jim Gaffigan (That �70s Show, Ed), Kyle Howard (Related, Orange County), Reid Scott (American Dreams), Michael Bunin (Scrubs), Jamie Kaler (The Family Stone) and Kellee Stewart (Guess Who?).
Nov. 28 Episodes:
�Pilot� � Written by Betsy Thomas; Directed by Barnett Kellman
Chicago sports reporter PJ Franklin (Jordana Spiro) feels very comfortable in her life, hanging out and playing poker or softball with her group of male friends. But when Bobby (Kyle Howard), a sports reporter for a rival Chicago newspaper, joins the gang, she sees a potential new love interest. Life gets confusing when PJ tries to navigate these romantic waters.
�Mixed Signals� � Written by Betsy Thomas; Directed by Barnet Kellman
PJ (Jordana Spiro) is confused when Bobby (Kyle Howard) gives her a signed baseball as a gift, since she doesn�t know if it�s supposed to signal a new step in their relationship. And when he shows up at a bar with a yoga instructor/dancer on his arm, PJ�s confusion only becomes more overwhelming. Meanwhile, ladies man Mike (Jamie Kaler) has his eye on a woman Kenny (Michael Bunin) has been wanting to date.
