A contractor learns that parenting his three young children may be the most difficult job he’s ever had. When Adam’s wife goes back to work, he’s overwhelmed by his new responsibilities at home, but with the encouragement of his wife and a few equally stressed-out parents, Adam regroups, lays down the law and starts figuring out his new world order.
CBS announced its list of renewals today for the 2020-2021 season, and Man With A Plan did not make the cut. The comedy, now in its fourth season, is the only returning show that the network did not pick up.
The comedy premiered in 2016 as Matt LeBlanc's first return to network television since his career-making turn as Joey Tribbiani on Friends and its subsequent spin-off Joey. The show garnered fairly consistent ratings over the course of its run, but CBS switched things up in Season 3, shortening its episode count and moving it to the mid-season, where it remained for Season 4.
In Man With A Plan, LeBlanc plays as a married man with three young children. His work as a contractor has seen his wife taking on most of the child-rearing responsibilities, but when she decides to go back to work, he must adjust to his new role as a stay-at-home dad.
