TEN YEAR OLD TOM follows the misadventures of an average kid as he contends with questionable guidance from the well-meaning grownups around him. Being a kid is hard enough for Tom, but when bad influences seemto lurk around every corner –from litigious parents and drug dealing bus drivers to school administrators who want to sleep with his mom –it’s downright impossible. While the adults in Tom’s life certainly mean well, they just can’t manage to lead by example.
Steve Dildarian, Byron Bowers, Todd Glass, Gillian Jacobs, Edi Patterson and John Malkovich.
Executive produced by Steve Dildarian (creator), Nick Weidenfeld, Marty Adelstein, Tomorrow Studios.
Ten Year Old Tom is well worth checking out.

Ten Year Old Tom is something of a comedic triumph, however. Tom is a mix of the biblical Job and a bemused character out of a Beckett play, and the show is original enough that one goes looking for comparisons.
John Anderson, Wall Street Journal
Dildarian fans, and those who appreciate sharp, slightly warped adult comedy, will enjoy ‘Ten Year Old Tom’ and the slightly-off-kilter world of this clever series.
