The series, from eOne, stars Adam Korson as Harry, a single, an underachieving bachelor/bartender who is also a sperm donor.  Harry reluctantly begins a relationship with three unique and separate recipient families — a laid-back lesbian couple with a 9-year-old son, a neurotically hopeful single mom-to-be, and an uptight, upper-class family with a rebellious teenage daughter — with whom he’ll come to share more than just his DNA.

“Seed,” which comes from the creative team of Joseph Raso (“Zombies & Cheerleaders”) and writer Mark Farrell (“This Hour Has 22 Minutes”), became City’s highest-rated comedy in the network’s history following its February premiere.
