“Pilot” – When Jules meets Lowell, the man of her dreams, during a whirlwind romance and decides to get married, her friends start to examine their own love lives. Meanwhile, to prove to Will that she isn’t picky and shallow, Kate lets him set her up on a blind date, on the special series premiere of FRIENDS WITH BETTER LIVES, Monday, March 31 (9:01-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The series moves to its regular 8:30 PM slot on Monday, April 14.

“Friends with Better Lives” is a romantic comedy about six friends at different stages in their lives – married, divorced, newly engaged and single – who are outwardly happy, but secretly questioning if their friends have it better.

Andi and Bobby are happily married with a toddler and another baby on the way, but at times long for the days they had less responsibility and more fun; Will is newly single and preaching the bachelor lifestyle, but still pining for his ex-wife; Jules and Lowell are high on their passionate new relationship; and Kate has a successful career but may have a breakdown when she finds out her last remaining single friend, Jules, just got engaged. When it comes to relationships, these six friends are finding it a challenge to look at each other without wondering… who really has the better life?
