Plot Synopsis

Starring and executive produced by Matt LeBlanc, MAN WITH A PLAN is a half-hour sitcom about Adam Burns, a Pittsburgh-based contractor who starts spending more time with his kids when his wife goes back to work, forcing him to discover the truth all parents eventually realize: their little angels are maniacs. Adam feels fully equipped to take on more parenting responsibilities while his self-assured wife, Andi, returns to the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom for 13 years. However, Adam is blindsided by how tough it is to wrangle three messy kids who can't live without Wi-Fi. Their preteen daughter, Kate, is a master manipulator and initially thrilled that "Daddy Fun Times" is taking over; middle child Teddy can't seem to keep his hands out of his pants despite constant reminders; and their precious youngest, Emme, is nervous about starting kindergarten under the stern supervision of Mrs. Rodriguez. But with Andi's encouragement and advice from a couple of equally stressed parents, Marie and Lowell, Adam takes charge of his brood, lays down the law and discovers he's going to "nail" this job.
On Monday, May 15, 2017 at 8:30pm ET/PT, CBS premiered the Season 1 finale of MAN WITH A PLAN. In the season ender, "Buzzer Beater," Adam and Andi toy with having another baby when Don and Marcy's newborn grandson comes for a visit. Two months earlier -- on March 23 -- CBS renewed MAN WITH A PLAN for a second season.
