DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, April 2013) When Tim Elliot (Rob Corddry) is unexpectedly awarded custody of his acerbic and precocious 10-year-old son Marcus (Mason Cook), he realizes he must prove to his son and his acidic ex-wife Erica (Paget Brewster) that he is not a complete loser. So he quits his dead-end barista job, much to the surprise of his anti-social best friend Chris (Moshe Kasher), and applies for a boring office job doing data entry. But when he accidentally takes the wrong assessment test his life changes forever. Miraculously, he is recruited by the CIA as a trainee spy by irrepressible maverick CIA boss, The Examiner (Ken Jeong). And so Tim sets about juggling his family life and his professional life, all the while having to keep secret the one thing that might actually win him the respect of his son. Romance may also be in the cards for recently divorced Tim in the form of fellow spy Caitlin, provided she can let her guard down long enough, or perhaps if he's really unlucky, he may fall into the web of obsessive family therapist, Paula. From executive producers Simeon Goulden and Jimmy Mulville (Hat Trick Productions), and Jeff & Jackie Filgo (THAT 70s SHOW), and based on the hit Sky show comes a hilarious comedy about the lengths one dad will go to win over his son... SPY.
