While this wasn’t originally in the plan, CBS has upped its second season order for its Man with a Plan TV show to a full season. Although the season two renewal was initially for a limited 13 episode run, after pulling freshman sitcom, Me, Myself & I from the schedule — leaving it effectively cancelled — the Tiffany Network moved up the premiere for Matt LeBlanc’s Man with a Plan, to fill the gap.
A CBS family comedy, Man with a Plan stars LeBlanc as a contractor named Adam. When his wife, Andi (Liza Snyder), returns to work, this old-school dad has to step up his home game with the kids and finds it harder than he thought possible. The cast also includes Kevin Nealon, Stacy Keach, Grace Kaufman, Matthew McCann, Hala Finley, and Matt Cook.
Here’s the CBS press release excerpt.
