Coming this fall to CBS Entertainment Network: Accidentally on Purpose

I am part of a special group of bloggers who were recently invited to have a chance to preview some new television shows coming to CBS this fall.

The first show being reviewed is called " Accidentally on Purpose". As the CBS press site states:

ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE is a comedy starring Golden Globe Award winner Jenna Elfman as Billie, a single woman who finds herself "accidentally" pregnant after a one-night stand with a much younger guy, and decides to keep the baby… and the guy. A newspaper film critic, Billie is barely surviving a humiliating breakup with her charming boss, James (Grant Show), who's still trying to resume their relationship. Suddenly expecting a child with her "boy toy," Zack (Jon Foster), Billie and Zack make an arrangement: to live together platonically. Billie's party girl best friend Olivia (Ashley Jensen), and Abby (Lennon Parham), her conventional, younger married sister, eagerly look forward to the new addition and offer their own brands of advice and encouragement. But when Zack and his freeloading friends, including Davis (Nicolas Wright), start to turn her place into a frat house, Billie isn't sure if she's living with a boyfriend, a roommate, or if she just has another child to raise. Lloyd Braun, Gail Berman, Gene Stein and Claudia Lonow are the executive producers for CBS Television Studios. Pamela Fryman directed the pilot.ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE will premiere this Fall, Mondays (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Take a look for yourself:

I found the pilot to be entertaining and very funny. I have been a fan of Jenna Elfman since her " Dharma and Greg" days. She brings a similar energy to this comedy as well. The supporting cast is terrific and the potential for future story lines seems endless. I can't wait to see where this show will go!
