Description:Widower Ben Stevenson tries to be both parent and pal to his precocious 12-year-old son, Matty, when he isn't working as an editor at a small Chicago publishing house run by bickering ex-spouses Alex and Nicole. At home, Ben's father, James, and brother, Carl, are more than ready to offer unsolicited advice on everything from childrearing to romance. Ben's administrative assistant, Angela, also is good for a supportive hug now and then.
