Matthew Perry, the star of NBC's upcoming freshman comedy GO ON is hoping for a 'Friends' reunion on his new show. In an interview with WENN, the actor shared his wish to reunite with his former 'Friends' cast mates, commenting, "It would be fantastic to get the guys on the show. Not right at the beginning though. You want to set up that these people are all part of a new thing. But further down the line? That would be fantastic. I'd love that."
In addition to Perry, NBC's new series stars Broadway vets Laura Benanti and Julie White. According to the official NBC synopsis of the show:
Misery loves company. Unless you're sportscaster Ryan King (Matthew Perry, "Friends," "Mr. Sunshine") who thinks misery should just be left alone. After taking some time off, Ryan – who recently lost his wife in a car accident – is now ready to get back to work. And while he seems like his same old charming, cocky self, his boss won't set him back on the air until he seeks counseling. So, Ryan reluctantly joins a support group with one goal in mind: get in, get out and get back on the radio as quickly as possible. Played by the fast-talking, sarcastic, and charismatic Perry, Ryan gives grief a real run for its money.
Within one day of group therapy, he hijacks the meeting and suddenly the downtrodden are cajoled into playing a game of "who's got the best sob story?" And in no time all of them are battling it out, trying to one-up each other's despair. Now, this is fun! Ryan's total lack of interest in healing might be just what this group needs – and maybe, exactly what he needs to move on with his life. Also starring are Tony winner Julie White ("Transformers"), Bill Cobbs ("The Muppets," "Night at the Museum"), Suzy Nakamura ("Dodgeball"), Khary Payton ("General Hospital") and Allison Miller ("Terra Nova").
NBC will air a special preview of GO ON on August 8, with the series debuting on September 11.
