Watch Man Up
- 1 Season
Man Up, also known as Man Up!, is an American, live action, single-camera situation comedy that aired on the ABC television network. Set in a suburb of Colu,mbus, Ohio, the show is the story of three thirtysomething guys who, after years of pursuing childish and emotionally sensitive lifestyles, decide it's time to act like real men. Will (Mather Zickel), Kenny (Dan Fogler), and Craig (Christopher Moynihan) are friends who have yet to realize their boyish antics aren't playing well with their other friends and family. The most stable of the three is Will. Married to Teresa (Teri Polo), Will has two children, Nathan and Lucy (Jake Johnson and Charlotte Labadie), who he'd rather spend time looking for birthday gifts for than spending time selling insurance. Will's friends aren't as well off in the relationship department. Kenny has to hold back his anger when his ex-wife Brenda (Amanda Detmer) starts seeing someone totally opposite of his persona. And years after he graduated, Craig still yearns for his old college sweetheart, Lisa. It's this passion for her, and the subsequent crashing of her wedding that spurns the three friends to look at their lives and decide to grow up. Created and written by Christopher Moynihan, Man Up was produced by ABC Studios in association with Garfield Grove Productions, TagLine Television, and Bicycle Path Productions. The show premiered on October 18, 2011, but was canceled and yanked off the air after December 6, 2011. The remaining five unaired episodes premiered online at ABC's website. All episodes of Man Up were removed from the site in January of 2012. As of this writing, there is no information on whether the series will be released on DVD.
