I'm Not Your Friend - Matt LeBlanc to Star in CBS Comedy Pilot with Series Commitment



EXCLUSIVE UPDATED: This is a monster comedy package that has come together very fast and is looking to become one of the top prospects of Pilot Season 2016. Veteran comedy writers Jeff and Jackie Filgo (That ’70s Show) have been developing two comedy scripts at CBS through CBS TV Studios this season, but they also wrote a third on spec. It was that one that got everyone at CBS TV Studios and sister network buzzing.

The script quickly got the attention of Friends alum Matt LeBlanc, who had been heavily pursued by TV studios, having just become available after wrapping what is fully expected to be the final season of Showtime’s showbiz comedy series Episodes. With him interested in starring, the script also attracted top multi-camera director James Burrows. Not all deals are being hammered out but I’ve learned that the project is poised to get a pilot order at CBS.

(UPDATE: The pilot pickup was just confirmed by CBS) Additionally, I hear the pact includes a 13-episode guarantee to LeBlanc, indicating that the network is high on the project for a potential series order.

The comedy, titled I’m Not Your Friend, stars LeBlanc as a contractor who learns that raising his kids is more challenging than expected when his wife goes back to work. LeBlanc is executive producing with Jeff and Jackie Filgo and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Michael Rotenberg and Troy Zien.

The CBS comedy series will be in addition to LeBlanc’s recently co-hosting duties on Top Gear.
