TV boss Glenn Geller has confirmed reports suggesting Jenna Fischer was dumped from Matt LeBlanc's new show because she and the former Friends star had no chemistry.

Jenna became a TV darling as the star of comedy The Office, but she wasn't a good fit for Matt's new series Man With a Plan, which will debut later this year.

The actress appeared in the pilot of the show, but she won't return for the new CBS series.

Network boss Geller has called Fischer a "phenomenal actress", but tells TheWrap, "It just wasn't the right actress for the right role, ultimately, when we saw the pilot... Recasting on pilots happens all the time."

In the new show, LeBlanc will play a contractor forced to take more care of his kids when his wife returns to work.
