"How to Be a Gentleman" (CBS TV show), inspired by the book of the same name by John Bridges, is a comedy about the unlikely friendship between a traditional, refined writer and an unrefined personal trainer.

Andrew Carlson (David Hornsby) is an etiquette columnist whose devotion to ideals from a more civilized time has lead to a life detached from modern society. Infectiously optimistic, Bert Lansing (Kevin Dillon) is a reformed "bad boy" from Andrew's past who inherited a fitness center, but can still be rude, loud and sloppy. When Andrew's editor, Jerry (Dave Foley), tells him to put a modern, sexy twist on his column or be fired, he hires Bert as a life coach in the hopes of learning to be less "gentle man" and more "real man." Andrew's mom, Diane (Nancy Lenehan), and his bossy sister, Janet (Mary Lynn Rajskub), support the plan, as would Janet's husband, Mike (Rhys Darby), if he was allowed to have an opinion. Though Andrew and Bert's views may be centuries apart, they may find they're each other's missing link.

The "How to Be a Gentleman" cast includes David Hornsby, Nancy Lenehan, Dave Foley, Rhys Darby, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Kevin Dillon.

"How to Be a Gentleman" is produced by CBS Television Studios. David Hornsby ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), Adam Chase ("Friends"), Ted Schachter ("The Invention of Lying"), Joe Hipps and Modi Wiczyk are executive producers. The pilot is written by Hornsby and directed by Pam Fryman.
