EXCLUSIVE: Matt LeBlanc on Playing a Dad for the First Time in New Comedy 'Man With a Plan'

By
Matt LeBlanc is returning to TV in a role unlike any other we've seen him play, and ET was on set for a first look at his upcoming show, Man With a Plan.
The CBS comedy centers on a contractor (LeBlanc) who starts spending more time at home when his wife (Liza Snyder) goes back to work, but soon discovers that parenting is the toughest job out there.
While viewers are used to seeing the Friends alum as a bachelor on screen, LeBlanc told ET he's ready to join the club of TV dads.
"I feel like it's time," LeBlanc said. "I'm about 1,000 years old now, so I feel like this is a new thing for me. I've never really done this before."
What he lacks in TV dad experience, LeBlanc makes up for in real-life parenting history. He's the father to 12-year-old daughter Marina.
"Being a dad in real life, some funny stuff has happened, and I think it's about time to put that on TV," he explained.
LeBlanc also has a history with on-screen wife, Snyder. The two have been friends for decades and their chemistry was evident from day one of filming.
"The comfortability was built in," Snyder said.
Man With a Plan premieres Monday, Oct. 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
