Looks like Matthew Perry knows where his Friends are!
The actor will be tag-teaming his old boss, Friends showrunner Scott Silveri, for a new pilot on NBC. Matthew will co-executive produce and star in Go On, a show about a sportscaster suffering a personal loss who finds solace in his support group.
Once the two saw the chance to work with each other again, Perry and Silveri gushed over each other!
Matthew said the following about Silveri:
Scott has written a very funny, touching pilot. I’m very excited to be working with him again. I asked him to turn this into an ice show. He said no. We have picked up right where we left off.
And Silveri returns the favor:
When I started writing the character, no matter who I was thinking of at 9 AM, by 10 AM I was writing with Matthew’s voice. Matthew is a mightily talented actor and one of our great comedic voices. He and I worked together for eight wonderful years on Friends. I’m thrilled for this opportunity for him to learn my name.
Get a room, you two lovebirds!
After Mr. Sunshine fell through the cracks, Matthew could use a pick-me-up.
Let's hope this Go-around has some success!
