MADIGAN MEN -- International film star Gabriel Byrne ("End
of Days," " The Usual Suspects") comes to television in a new
comedy from Golden Globe Award-winning writer Cindy Chupack ("
Sex and the City", which examines the lives of three generations
of men making their way through the dating world).
Byrne stars as Benjamin Madigan, a handsome, successful and
charismatic architect in New York City. He is single, adorable
and available and should be making out like a bandit with the
ladies. But Benjamin is recently divorced, and after 20 years of
being a dutiful husband and provider, he just hasn't got a clue
about dating. He is a member of a rare breed of men -- the sexy
man completely oblivious to his own sexiness. While his
co-workers shove him into the dating world, he is full of the
most rudimentary questions, like how soon to call a woman after
she gives you her number. For the answers to these and many
other questions, Ben can turn to his 16-year-old son, Luke (John
Hensley), for whom juggling a series of girlfriends couldn't come
more naturally. In addition, Ben's recently widowed father,
Seamus (Roy Dotrice, TV's " Beauty and the Beast"), has just
moved in. Seamus is ornery and speaks his mind, and with Luke's
help, they might just be able to teach Benjamin a thing or two
about dating and women in the 21st century.
