NBC is working on a new series called Friends With Benefits.
The “half-hour, single-camera comedy” will be directed by Wedding Crashers‘ David Dobkin, and written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, who co-wrote 500 Days of Summer. Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, and David Nevins will also jump on as executive producers, according to The Wrap.
Sounds like a winner.
But ABC originally passed on the show after reading the script.
