Per Deadline, Jenna Fischer has left Matt LeBlanc’s Man with a Plan TV show at CBS. The sitcom was formerly known as I’m Not Your Friend. In the series, LeBlanc plays a contractor whose wife returns to the workforce. Once he must spend more times with his kids, CBS says, “[he] discovers the truth every parent eventually realizes: his little angels are maniacs.”
That ’70s Show‘s Jeff and Jackie Filgo wrote Man with a Plan on spec, while developing two other shows. When Matt LeBlanc boarded the pilot so did the highly acclaimed James Burrows, who directed the pilot. The Office alumna had been cast as the female lead, opposite LeBlanc. Her role will be recast.
What do you think? Who would you like to see cast as the female lead in Man with a Plan? Are you sorry Fischer will not continue with the series, or is the thought of Pam Beesly’s alter-ego married to Joey Tribiani’s just too traumatizing?
