Here’s a guide to the cast and characters of CBS sitcom Man With A Plan. Created by married screenwriting duo Jackie and Jeff Filgo, Man With A Plan premiered its first season on CBS in 2016. Set in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, the sitcom stars Matt LeBlanc as lead character Adam Burns. Adam is a married man and father of three who soon finds out being a stay-at-home dad is harder than it looks after his wife goes back to work, and he must juggle parenting responsibilities alongside running his own construction business.
Although it hasn’t been a big hit with critics, Man With A Plan has managed to survive for three seasons so far thanks to consistent ratings. In the spring of 2019, the show was renewed alongside fellow CBS sitcoms including Young Sheldon, Mom, and The Neighborhood. The fourth season of Man With A Plan is set to premiere in 2020 and will bring the sitcom a step closer to syndication.
