Matthew Perry is set to come home to the network that birthed him, NBC, in what I assume is a spinoff of the late 90s hit Joey. The new show, entitled Go On, was just picked up for a 13-episode season by the network and will feature Perry as “an irreverent yet charming sportscaster who, trying to move on from a loss, finds surprising solace from the members of his mandatory support group.” Irreverent yet charming? I dunno, I can’t really see it, not his style.
Perry is re-teaming up with Friends (and Joey!) executive producer Scott Silveri for the show, so you know, it’s pretty much guaranteed that it’ll be a hit that shoots NBC back into 1996 levels of success. Excelsior!
