Chicka Chicka yeah! McLovin is heading to a TV near you. (Terrifying?)

Superbad actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse has been cast in a CBS pilot, playing a Groupon employee in the comedy Friend Me.

The pilot, from Raising Hope writer Alan Kirschenbaum and Ajay Sahgal, centers around a pair of Indiana natives (Mintz-Plasse and 10 Thing I Hate About You series actor Nicholas Braun) who move to Los Angeles and work for Groupon. It will mark the first TV lead role for Mintz-Plasse.
