Exciting news for ’90s sitcom tragics.. like myself.
“Mad About You”, the witty NBC 30-minuter (set in the “Seinfeld” universe) about a couple of newlyweds (and Murray, their eternally-lazy dog), is officially returning to the box.
The long-rumored revival, which sees Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt return to the Buckman household, has been picked up by Spectrum Originals for a run later this year. Spectrum, if the name doesn’t ring a bell, recently picked up another Sony-produced series, “Bad Boys” spin-off “L.A’s Finest”.
No word on who else will be back for the new batch of eps, but I’d say there’s a fair shot we’ll see Lisa Kudrow’s ditzy Ursula again.
Peter Tolan is tapped to be the showrunner, and Helen Hunt will direct the first episode. Danny Jacobson, who co-created the show with Reiser will serve as an executive consultant.
“We are so excited to finally be doing this and thrilled to have Peter Tolan as our fearless captain,” Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt said in a joint statement. “We promise you the same funny and heartwarming show – as soon as we can remember what’s funny about being older. It’s going to be great!”
“We are beyond thrilled to team up with Sony Pictures Television to give ‘Mad About You’ an exclusive home at Spectrum Originals,” said Katherine Pope, Head of Original Content. “Two decades ago, fans fell in love with this show, and this time will be no different as Paul, Helen and Peter explore modern marriage through the eyes of two people who have just become empty-nesters. We can’t wait for everyone to fall in love with the Buchmans all over again.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with Helen and Paul and to partner with Spectrum Originals and Katherine, to bring this acclaimed comedy back to life,” said Jeff Frost, President of SPT, Chris Parnell and Jason Clodfelter, Co-Presidents of SPT. “It has been a labor of love for all involved and we think audiences will relish the next chapter in these wonderful characters’ lives.
Fun casting for IG-88 in The Mandalorian
The upcoming live-action “Star Wars” series set to premiere on Disney Plus
“Thor Ragnarok” helmer Taika Waititi recently shot an episode of Disney Plus’s “The Mandalorian” – the live-action “Star Wars” TV series that will feature, among others, fan-fave Boba Fett – and now it’s being revealed he’s also playing a character in it.
Showrunner and executive producer Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) has posted a behind-the-scenes pic on Instagram of the beloved filmmaker recording his voice for the part of bounty hunter IG-88. The droid character is best known for his appearance in “The Empire Strikes Back” but he didn’t speak in his brief moments on screen.
Waititi, you may recall, also voiced a part in “Thor Ragnarok” – that of amiable Kiwi rock-guy Korg.
“The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
