Breakfast with Scot is a 2007 Canadian comedy film, released in Canada and is an adapted from the novel by Tufts University professor Michael Downing, the film stars Tom Cavanagh as Eric McNally, a gay retired hockey player turned television sportscaster who lives with his partner Sam (Ben Shenkman), a sports lawyer. When Sam unexpectedly becomes the legal guardian of his brother's stepson Scot (Noah Bernett), their lives are turned upside down. Eric's unwillingness to become a parent eventually fades as Scot teaches Eric about accepting and loving your true self.

The screenplay was adapted by Sean Reycraft from the book by Michael Downing, and the film was directed by Laurie Lynd. The film attracted significant press attention in 2006, when the National Hockey League and the Toronto Maple Leafs announced that they had approved the use of the team's logo and uniforms in the film.[1] Breakfast with Scot was the first gay-themed film ever to receive this type of approval from a professional sports league.[1][2]
