Jenna Fischer is moving to an office of a different kind.
The Office’s erstwhile receptionist has been tapped to star opposite Friends alum Matt LeBlanc in the CBS comedy pilot previously known as I’m Not Your Friend, EW has confirmed.
The multi-camera comedy pilot, under the current working title Untitled LeBlanc Filgos Project, revolves around husband-and-wife duo Adam (LeBlanc) and Andi (Fischer). When Andi returns to work as a medical lab technician, contractor Adam takes over the parenting chores, only to discover that raising his kids is more challenging than he expected.
