LOS ANGELES ( - The CW is getting "Seed"-y with its latest acquisition.

The network has licensed the U.S. broadcast rights for the comedy "Seed," which premiered on the Canadian network City in February.

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.
