CBS Asks Amanda Lund To 'Friend Me'

Amanda LundAmanda Lund has been "re-friended" by CBS.

The eye network has introduced a new regular female character to its midseason buddy comedy Friend Me, marking Lund's return to CBS, as she co-starred in a single-camera comedy pilot that narrowly missed out on a series order last season.

In the lead female role on the multi-camera comedy, Lund will play Amanda Baxter, an upbeat and socially awkward young woman who heads to Los Angeles to move on with her life after breaking up with her boyfriend.

While working as a caterer with plans to become a chef one day, Amanda befriends her new neighbors, two twentysomething best friends named Evan (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and Rob (Nicholas Braun) who have recently arrived from Indiana to start new jobs. The two guys differ on how to acclimate to their new surroundings: Rob is eager to embrace the LA scene and meet new people, while Evan is content to spend his time online in his underwear, chatting and playing poker over the internet with his old buddies from home Mike (Parvesh Cheena), Farhad (Dan Ahdoot), and Sully (Tim Robinson).

Centering around a couple of roommates and their new-to-town pretty blonde neighbor, the premise of Friend Me has some similarities to CBS hit sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Can this new show achieve similar success?
