At the beginning of the summer, Citytv announced plans to unroll nine new comedies, one of which is "Seed," which recently began production.

The new series follows Harry (Adam Korson of "2 Broke Girls"), who discovers that his foray into the world of sperm donation has resulted in kids – lots and lots of kids. The ill-equipped bachelor finds himself entangled in the lives of his newfound children and their less-than-thrilled families; a lesbian couple and their 9-year-old oddball son, a painfully eager husband and wife and their rebellious teenage daughter, and an impulsive single woman with a ticking biological clock who is pregnant with his child. Produced by Vancouver's Force Four Entertainment, the show also stars Carrie-Lynn Neales ("The L.A. Complex"), Amanda Brugel ("Saving Hope," "The Firm"), Stephanie Anne Mills ("Total Drama Island"), Matt Baram ("Saving Hope," "Wingin’ It"), and Vanessa Matsui ("King, XIII: The Series"). It will also feature newcomers Abby Ross and William Ainscough.

“We are excited to watch our dynamic cast put their own creative stamp on this timely story about a prolific sperm donor who is ill-equipped for his enthusiastic and hilarious journey into fatherhood,” said John Richie, Executive Producer and Partner of Force Four Entertainment, in an official release.

Thirteen episodes of the half-hour show have been ordered, and production began this week in Halifax. It is scheduled to air on Citytv early next year.
