It came down to the wire, but Matt LeBlanc has his new leading lady on his upcoming CBS multi-camera comedy series Man with A Plan. After a lengthy casting process, Yes, Dear alumna Liza Snyder has landed the female lead in the project, returning to the network. She replaces Jenna Fischer, who played the role in the pilot. Man with a Plan starts production this week for an October 24 premiere.
Written by Jeff & Jackie Filgos and directed by James Burrows, Man with a Plan stars LeBlanc as Adam, a contractor who learns that raising his kids is more challenging than expected when his self-assured wife Andi (Snyder) returns to work after being a stay-at-home mom for 13 years, while Adam agrees to take on more parenting responsibilities.
Snyder, who also had a starring role in Jesse, is repped by Greene & Associates Talent Agency.
Man with a Plan is produced by CBS Television Studios. Jackie Filgo, Jeff Filgo, Michael Rotenberg, Troy Zien and LeBlanc serve as executive producers.
