Friends With Benefits is a sitcom that is being burned off on NBC this summer. Originally intended to be a part of the 2010-2011 lineup, it never quite made it to the air until now (you'd think NBC would have been able to find a place for it considering all the sitcom bombs they aired this season). As the title implies, it focuses on two friends (Ben and Sara) who are best friends that are unlucky in love and in the meantime, they sleep with each other. As is necessary in a romantic comedy of today's day and age, they are rounded out by a quirky class of young urban friends. In the pilot, both Ben and Sara experience another bad date while two other friends hook up.
