The birth of a new show: The CW Network has purchased the U.S. broadcast rights for the half-hour comedy series "Seed."
The Canadian series tells the story of Harry (Adam Korson), a single, underachieving bachelor/bartender who is also a sperm donor. Harry reluctantly begins a relationship with three unique and separate recipient families with whom he'll come to share more than just his DNA.
No date has been announced for the show launch.
