NBC Picks Up Matthew Perry Sitcom

by at . Comments

It's official: Matthew Perry will be coming to a living room near you this fall.

The former Friends star, currently mesmerizing The Good Wife viewers as a candidate for Illinois Governor, will star later this year in Go On, the first pilot on any network to receive an episode order.

Go On is a single-camera comedy that features Perry as a sportscaster who joins a support group after an unknown loss of some kind. It also stars Laura Benanti, Julie White, Suzy Nakamura, Allison Miller and Khary Payton.

NBC has also ordered 13 episodes of Hannibal, a drama from Bryan Fuller based on Dr. Hannibal Lecter, but that series skipped the pilot process altogether. It will star Hugh Dancy as Will Graham.

I'm VERY happy to hear he may be coming back especially after falling in love with him again on the Good Wife, even though he's so evil. Hopefully this character will have a dark side too, he's great!

Both of these shows sound fantastic.
