NBC to premiere Paul Reiser's 'The Paul Reiser Show' sitcom in April
UPI News Service, 03/22/2011
NBC says it will begin airing its new U.S. single-camera comedy "The Paul Reiser Show" next month.
Reiser is best known for his work on the sitcom "Mad About You."
His latest project is to premiere on NBC April 14.
"The show stars Reiser as -- Paul Reiser," NBC said in a synopsis of "The Paul Reiser Show" Tuesday.
"It's been a few years since his hit TV series went off the air. Since then, he's been enjoying the quiet life at home with his lovely wife, Claire, and kids and generally minding his own business, writing and producing television but enjoying life out of the spotlight," the synopsis said.
"Getting him into trouble -- and into adventures -- are a group of new 'friends,' most of which he didn't choose since they're the husbands of his wife's friends and the dads of his kids' classmates. Thrown together by circumstance, Reiser and his cohorts, including Jonathan, Habib, Fernando and Brad, form an unlikely comradeship -- and a pretty lame basketball team."
The show co-stars Amy Landecker, Ben Shenkman, Omid Djalili, Duane Martin and Andrew Daly.
The Los Angeles Times said "Reiser" will replace the sitcom "Perfect Couples" in the Thursday 8:30 p.m. timeslot.
