Movie Details

Produced for cable's TBS superstation, the half-hour sitcom My Boys starred Jordana Spiro as Miss P.J. Franklin, a wisecracking, fun-loving sports columnist for the Chicago Sun Times. Though by her very nature as a female "jock" P.J. had plenty of male companionship, she really yearned for a lasting romance. Episodes focused on P.J.'s dealings with her ex-boyfriend Mike Callahan (Jamie Kaler), who worked for the Chicago Cubs organization and who had serious commitment issues (mainly, he couldn't make any!); her public-defender brother Andy (Jim Gaffigan),who frequently hung out at P.J.'s apartment to escape his strict, possessive spouse; her friend Kenny Moritorri (Michael Bunin), an anal-retentive trivia freak who ran a sports-memorabilia store and whose social life was next to nil; hard-rock radio DJ Brendan Dorff (Reid Scott), who invariably crashed at P.J.'s pad whenever he'd had a fight with his girlfriend; her best female friend Stephanie (Kellee Stewart), likewise a journalist and the series' obligatory "sounding board" for the heroine's problems; and her chief rival, Chicago Tribune sportswriter Bobby Newman (Kyle Howard). The action was divided between P.J.'s digs and everybody's favorite hangout, Crowley's Bar. Debuting November 28, 2006, My Boys was initially shown in tandem with TBS's reruns of the similarly-themed sitcom Sex and the City. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
