Matthew Perry Will ‘Go On’ With Friend-ly Return to NBC

For every Dane Cook three-camera sitcom the network adds to its ranks, it’s nice to know that NBC occasionally plays to its strengths, and our sense of nostalgia.

Former ‘Friends’ star Matthew Perry has been tapped to return to the network that made him a star, this time taking up a new single-camera pilot ‘Go On.’

According to a new report from TVLine, Perry’s former ‘Friends’ writer colleague Scott Silveri penned the pilot, which follows Perry as a sportscaster (seriously, how often does that get used in pilot season?) who takes solace in his group therapy sessions in the wake of a tragic loss.

Best we can guess, the loss isn’t Matthew Perry’s career.

‘Go On’ isn’t the first post-’Friends’ comeback vehicle Perry has attempted, including last year’s failed ABC effort ‘Mr. Sunshine,’ and the ’30 Rock’- destroyed Aaron Sorkin dramedy ‘Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.’  Perry’s co-star for the latest effort has been reported as Julie White (Shia Labeouf’s mom from ‘Transformers’!), who plays a widow stuck in the anger stage of the grieving process.

You can also catch Matthew Perry on TV in upcoming episodes of ‘The Good Wife’ opposite fellow former NBC star Julianna Marguilies, but what say you Perry fans on the news?  Will you watch Chandler Bing’s latest effort on the small screen, or is nostalgia bad for the grieving process?

Could we…BE more excited?  Sorry, Matthew.  Couldn’t resist.  Give us your take in the comments below!
