Actor Matt LeBlanc will headline a CBS pilot titled “I’m Not Your Friend.”

Matt LeBlanc’s newest project has a not-so-friendly message.

The 48-year-old actor will star in a CBS comedy fittingly titled “I’m Not Your Friend,” according to Variety magazine.

The “Friends” alum, who will also serve as an executive producer, will play a contractor who struggles to raise his children when his wife goes back to work.

The network has ordered a pilot for the multi-camera comedy and is reportedly offering LeBlanc a series commitment for the entire project, the magazine said.

The new show will make LeBlanc even busier as the actor recently signed on as the host of “Top Gear” for BBC beginning in May.

The “Friends” actor will star as a dad who learns how difficult it is to raise kids when his wife goes back to work.

LeBlanc will be the first non-British host in the popular English motoring show’s history.

However, the star’s schedule may free up a bit.

His hit show “Showtime” is rumored to end this year after five seasons.

The Golden-Globe winning actor will join former co-star Matthew Perry on the network, who currently stars in “The Odd Couple” remake

Also part of the show’s production team is Michael Rotenberg (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and husband and wife writing couple Jeff and Jackie Gilfo, who wrote the script.
