Modern Men was an American situation comedy television series which premiered March 17, 2006, on The WB. The series stars Eric Lively, Josh Braaten, and Max Greenfield as three single men, and lifelong friends, who hire a life coach to help them with their love lives. Wendie Malick played the life coach in the pilot episode, but when her series Jake in Progress was renewed, the role was recast with Jane Seymour. Marla Sokoloff and George Wendt are also part of the cast. The series was created by writers Ross McCall and Aaron Peters. It is the first situation comedy by executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The show was canceled on May 18, 2006, due to a lack of time slots from the merger of The WB and UPN that created the new network The CW.
