Surviving Jack is a new single-camera comedy based on best-selling author Justin Halpern's autobiographical book, "I Suck at Girls." Set in the 1990s, the ensemble series is about a man becoming a dad, as his son is becoming a man, in a time before "coming of age" was something you could Google.

JACK DUNLEVY (Emmy Award nominee Christopher Meloni, "True Blood," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"), ex-military and an oncologist, is a no-bull kind of guy. He sees little, if any, need to sugar-coat the truth. Up to this point, Jack's been the parent who's left for work early, come home late, eaten the big piece of chicken, yelled at his kids and gone to bed. But after years of deftly raising and running the family, his wife, JOANNE (Rachael Harris, "Suits," NEW GIRL, "The Hangover"), is starting law school, leaving Jack as a full-time parent for the very first time.

Jack's teenage son, FRANKIE (Connor Buckley, "Deception"), is just starting his freshman year in high school. Lanky, quick-witted, self-deprecating and not entirely sure of himself, all Frankie wants to do is fly under the radar. But over the summer, he grew 10 inches, threw a no-hitter against a rival team and started to attract girls - all of which put him in some awkward situations - especially when the only base he's ever gotten to is on the field.
