Matthew Perry to Star, Co-Write, and Executive Produce in a New Comedy

Matthew Perry Is Still There For You

Matt LeBlanc isn't the only Friend who's heading back to TV — his former on-screen roommate Matthew Perry has a new sitcom of his own in the works.

The comedy revolves around a narcissistic manager of a sports arena who starts rethinking his life plan when he turns 40. (Is it just me or does this sound like it may have been inspired by Perry's most recent movie, 17 Again?) Clearly this is a pet project of Perry's: he's set to star in, co-write, and executive produce the single-camera comedy, which will be produced by Sony Pictures TV.

After Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip was canceled, I was sad that Perry disappeared for a while. I think he shines the brightest on the small screen, even if his new character doesn't sound as much fun as my favorite friend Chandler Bing. Are you excited about this news?
