After starring and successfully winning awards for his show “Episodes,” which ran on Showtime in 2011, LeBlanc will soon be seen in a CBS comedy that is aptly called “I’m Not Your Friend.”
The comedy will be penned by Jeff and Jackie Filgo who worked on “That 70’s Show,” and it will be about a contractor (LeBlanc) who juggles between work and family life now that his wife has decided to go back to work fulltime. CBS has already lined up 13-episodes for “I’m Not Your Friend.”
Meanwhile, LeBlanc still has the fifth and possibly final season of “Episodes” awaiting air time on cable, while he’s also set to be the co-host of BBC America’s “Top Gear.” The latter show is one of the most popular car-related series around the world.
This February, LeBlanc will mark his return on NBC, “Friends'” home for 10 years, to give tribute to one of the show’s directors. He will b reuniting with his former “Friends” co-stars David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow. Matthew Perry will not be able to attend the tribute show due to a prior commitment in London.
