Matthew Perry is among "Friends" once again.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the actor has landed a role in an NBC comedy pilot called "Go On," with former "Friends" producer Scott Silveri on board to write and executive produce.
Perry would star as a sportscaster who's attending mandatory therapy sessions to help him move past a personal tragedy, which let's us know this will likely provide some darker laughs.
In the meantime, Phylicia Rashad, who played Clair Huxtable on NBC's seminal "The Cosby Show," is also returning to the Peacock Network with a drama pilot. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Rashad will portray the chief of surgery in "Do No Harm," a take on the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
