NBC just can't let go of former "Friends" star Matthew Perry. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Peacock network has ordered Perry's comedy, "Go On," to series.
Perry, who is currently appearing on "The Good Wife," will star and co-executive produce "Go On." Perry will play a sportscaster who tries to move on from a loss with the help of his mandatory support group. Thus far, the "Go On" cast also includes Julie White and Suzy Nakamura.
Former "Friends" writer Scott Silveri wrote the pilot directed by Todd Holland. This will be Perry's third series since the end of "Friends": He previously headlined NBC's "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and ABC's short-lived "Mr. Sunshine."
"Go On" joins "Hannibal" as two new shows on NBC. Bryan Fuller's series about Hannibal Lecter starring Hugh Dancy received a straight-to-series order in February 2012. The first season will be 13 episodes and Fuller has said he has long-term plans for the series.
No word on how the pick up news affects Perry's involvement with "The Good Wife." HuffPost TV reached out to CBS for a comment, but was told that the show's husband-and-wife creators Robert and Michelle King "are the only ones who’d be able to answer that question and they are currently out of the country and unreachable." Perry's "Good Wife" character recently announced plans to run against Peter Florrick for governor -- making Alicia Florrick's (Julianna Margulies) life hell.
