Matthew Perry to produce and star in new sitcom

Matthew PerryI was looking forward to Matthew Perry's new Showtime show The End of Steve, a drama about a radio talk show host. Unfortunately, Showtime wasn't looking forward to it as much as I was and didn't pick up the show.

Instead, Perry is going to produce, co-write, and star in a new comedy about a sports arena manager who finds himself thinking about where his life is at after he turns 40. Fans of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and The West Wing (two other shows that Perry was in) will be interested to know that Thomas Schlamme will be involved in the show too as director and co-producer.

Now we just need Allison Janney or Richard Schiff to join him (Bradley Whitford is going to be busy with his own show).

No word on how this will affect any possible Friends reunion (TV critics are contractually obligated to mention a Friends reunion in every post related to one of the cast members).

I liked the premise of "Steve" better, but hopefully this will wind up somewhere I can watch it. Tommy being involved definately boosts its appeal.

Isn't Schiff busy with a series of his own too?

Mathew Perry wasn't in West Wing. Bradley Whitford was, but not Mathew Perry

Could that BE any better? I like Matt Perry and I enjoyed Studio 60 (apparently I was the only one)... I'll tune in for sure.
