For his first gig as a TV regular, Christopher Mintz-Plasse-McLovin’ has selected CBS pilot Friend Me. The series will focus on two buddies who leave their Indiana small town digs to work at Groupon in L.A. The plot doesn’t fall anywhere on our new show trope-o-meter, which could be a plus, but … working for Groupon? Maybe the chemistry between Mintz-Plasse and Red State and Perks of Being a Wallflower actor Nicholas Braun will be dynamite? Isn’t Mintz-Plasse’s default chemistry setting “dynamite”?
