Chandler at 40: Matthew Perry will star in, co-write and executive produce an as-yet untitled ABC sitcom that he conceived, says the Hollywood Reporter.
The former Chandler Bing of Friends will play a self-absorbed manager of a second-rate sports arena who starts to take stock of his life as he turns 40 – the milestone Perry hit in August.
Other Friends sightings on the tube lately include Courteney Cox starring on ABC’s Cougar Town and Matt LeBlanc signing to headline the Showtime-BBC series Episodes.
