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 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?).
