How to Be a Gentleman is an American sitcom, which ran on CBS from Thursday, September 29, 2011 to October 15, 2011. Lead actor David Hornsby created the series, adapting the nonfiction book of the same name by John Bridges.Thirteen episodes were originally ordered for the first season. However, on October 7, after two Thursday episodes aired, it was announced the series episode order had been cut down to nine, effectively ending production immediately, and the remaining seven episodes would be burned off on Saturdays starting October 15 as part of the network's Comedytime Saturday block.
Based on a true story, this comic tale of three would-be entrepreneurs set out to invent a rocket belt. The venturesome partnership soon takes an unhealthy toll as their mismatched personalities clash and some unexpected success lead to retaliations and kidnapping in this parable of American dreams and delusions.
