"FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS"
08/05/2011 (08:00PM - 08:30PM) (Friday) : FROM OSCAR AND EMMY WINNER BRIAN GRAZER COMES A NEW NBC COMEDY SERIES - This half-hour comedy follows a group of twenty-something singles as they navigate the difficult, sometimes rewarding yet often confusing, world of dating. Ben Lewis (Ryan Hansen, "Party Down") is on the hunt for the perfect woman who meets his impossible set of high standards, while his best friend, Sara Maxwell (Danneel Ackles, "One Tree Hill"), a busy young doctor, is just looking for a nice, compatible man to settle down with and raise a family. Ben and Sara have fallen into the habit of turning to each other for moral and physical support as they wait for Mr. and Ms. Right to arrive. When Ben is confronted with needing a date to his sister's wedding, Sarah begins to worry that their arrangement is becoming too serious. Their friend Aaron Greenway (Zach Cregger, "Miss March"), a successful tech genius, is not quite sure what to make of Ben and Sara's complicated friendship, but he, along with the smooth ladykiller Julian "Fitz" Fitzgerald (Andre Holland) and the gorgeous, free-spirited Riley Elliott (Jessica Lucas, "Cloverfield"), are all distracted with their own dating trials and tribulations.
