TORONTO – 2 Broke Girls’ Adam Korson and Carrie-Lynn Neales (The L.A. Complex) are headlining the Citytv sitcom Seed from Force Four Entertainment.
Seed was created by Los Angeles-based Canadian screenwriter Joseph Raso (Zombies & Cheerleaders), and has Mark Farrell on board as a showrunner on the Halifax, Nova Scotia set.
Canadian thesp Korson plays an ill-equipped bachelor bartender who’s first foray into sperm donation produces a raft of kids and a budding relationship with a single woman (Neales) who used the sperm bank to try to get pregnant.
“This ticks all the boxes. Joseph’s (Raso) sense of humor is like nothing we have ever read,” Claire Freeland, director of original programming, broadcast for Citytv-parent Rogers Media, said of the latest Canadian series commission from the broadcaster.
The ambitious 13-episode, half-hour series has in all nine leads, including Amanda Brugel (Saving Hope, The Firm), Stephanie Anne Mills, Laura de Carteret, Matt Baram, Vanessa Matsui and newcomers Abby Ross and William Ainscough.
Paula J. Smith is the supervising producer and Karen Wentzell is producing.
Citytv plans an early 2013 debut for Seed.
The broadcaster is also debuting the inaugural season of The Bachelor Canada on Wednesday.
