Jenna Fischer in Matt LeBlanc Sitcom

Jenna Fischer to Play Matt LeBlanc's Wife in CBS Family Comedy Pilot

It’s a marriage made in sitcom heaven: The Office‘s Jenna Fischer is set to play Matt LeBlanc‘s wife in the Friends alum’s now-untitled CBS family comedy pilot, TVLine has learned.

Penned by Jeff and Jackie Filgo (That ’70s Show), the multi-camera project stars LeBlanc as Adam, a contractor who learns that raising his kids is more challenging than expected when his wife Andi (Fischer) goes back to work as a medical lab technician. The potential series was originally titled I’m Not Your Friend.

The cast also includes Grace Kaufman (The Last Ship) as Adam and Andi’s oldest child.

Fischer is currently starring in NBC’s comedic-drama You, Me and the Apocalypse. She’ll also be seen later this month playing the controlling onetime fiancée of Rob Lowe’s Dean on Fox’s The Grinder.

    what about her role in the mysteries of laura?

  2. It’s funny because this is the kind of show Episodes was mocking him for being in.

  3. Sarahii says:

    I’m not your Friend – a bit on the nose?

  4. Guilherme says:

    I love her.

  5. Wait, does that mean that Episodes is ending next season?

  6. Martina says:

    Where is he going to find the time? Episodes, Top Gear & now this, he’s gonna be a very busy man if this gets picked up.

  7. sarah t says:

    Will definitely be checking this out! I missed that she was going to be on The Grinder too so looking forward to that as well.

  8. Lori says:

    Does that mean mystery of Laura is not coming back

    • HAP says:

      Not yet renewed but should be. And as far as Episodes, a 9 episode season is not exactly a time consumer for Leblanc

  9. MaryC says:

    What happened to Showtime’s Episodes? Cancelled?

  10. Lindsey says:

    Wasn’t that literally the plot to Growing Pains? Don’t get me wrong, the show could be great, but it sounds very “1985.” Lol

  11. Dave James says:

    Let’s hope this time it goes better that the previous try. I blame the first go-around squarely on the writers!

    I love Jenna Fisher in everything!
