Matthew Perry alert! Showtime announced that they’ve picked up the pilot for Mr. Perry’s new series, The End of Steve, from Rescue Me creator Peter Tolan. On the show, which is described ominously as a "dark comedy", Mr. Perry will star as a talk show host in Rochester, New York trying to put both his professional and personal life back together. Sounds pretty good!
Of course this isn’t actually news, since the network ordered the series in the spring and was set to face a "significant penalty" if the pilot wasn’t picked up. But who cares! Any excuse we have to extol the virtues of our favorite Friend is an opportunity we’ll take.
