New Show Alert: Friends With Benefits

Dunno much about this series, except that I heard it was dead. Which means, it's probably not that good.

But it's not really dead. Because NBC will be burning off its episodes this June, in back-to-back airing (2 episodes per week).

Which still means it's bad.

It looks like any million other TV shows that revolve around friendship and dating. Here's the synopsis:

Ryan Hansen, Danneel Harris, Zach Cregger, Andre Holland and Jessica Lucas star in the 20th Century Fox Television-based series, about a group of twenty-something singles as they navigate the difficult, and often confusing, world of dating. Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber are the co-creators while Ira Ungerleider, David Dobkin, Jeff Kleeman and Brian Grazer are among the executive producers.

Oooops, familiar name: Ira Ungerleider. She was one of the writers on F*R*I*E*N*D*S!

I have no high hopes for this series. NBC is really just airing something that they've paid money for and the chances of it earning a Season 2 is 0.

Still, USA's SummerTV picks are few and I've got the time to watch this, so I'm gonna.

Check the teaser here.
