That’s right folks McLovin is heading to a TV near you thanks to CBS television. Superbad actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse has been cast in a CBS pilot, playing a Groupon employee in the comedy Friend Me.
Reportedly the pilot is being written by Alan Kirschenbaum and Ajay Sahgal, and it centers around a couple of Indiana natives (Mintz-Plasse &Nicholas Braun) who decide to move out west to Los Angeles and work for Groupon.
I don’t know about you but I don’t think that Mintz-Plasse brand of humor will translate well into a sitcom especially one that airs on CBS. If it makes it past the pilot I will definitely check it out but something tells me this thing is going to get shelved.
