The struggling network has ordered to series Go On, a single-camera project from Friends and Joey writer Scott Silveri and Universal Television. Todd Holland will executive produce and direct the pilot.
Go On centers on an irreverent yet charming sportscaster (Perry) who tries to move on from loss and finds solace from the members of his mandatory group-therapy sessions.
Transformers‘ Julie White will play Anne, a woman stuck in the anger stage of grief; Suzy Nakamura co-stars.
In addition to portraying Chandler on Friends for 10 seasons, the actor starred last year on ABC’s Mr. Sunshine, which was canceled after one season. The actor recently booked a multiepisode turn on CBS’ The Good Wife, playing a charming attorney.
The Perry series order comes as the network is looking to stars of the ’80s and ’90s to boost its comedy fortunes. The network also is mounting a Roseanne reunion, reteaming Roseanne Barr and John Goodman for its comedy pilot Downwardly Mobile. In addition, NBC’s Jeckyll-and-Hyde drama pilot Do No Harm co-stars The Cosby Show‘s Phylicia Rashad.
