NBC aired a new pilot last night (Sat Feb 22) after the Olympics, "About a Boy". Based on Nick Hornby's novel, which has already had a movie based on it (2002, Hugh Grant, Toni Collette). I thought this was good. Especially for a sitcom pilot, which are often the toughest pilots to suffer thru. David Walton plays a great Will Freeman; also has Minnie Driver as the boy's mom (the part Toni Collette played in the movie). The next episode is Tuesday, which will be its normal night. I have no idea if the pilot is being rerun before then? The writer is Jason Katims, who has an interesting history of taking successful movies and making TV series from them. He did Friday Night Lights and Parenthood (neither of which I happen to watch). I have no idea if this will make it, but I'll give credit to NBC for trying again with David Walton. I thought Bent (anyone remember Bent, Spring 2012) and Perfect Couples were decent shows. Bent was really good, but NBC did a poor job promoting it. Walton is one of those guys who plays a certain persona really well.
