Matt LeBlanc, yes, Friends Matt LeBlanc, is set to star in a new series on Showtime called Episodes. It’s a meta show about (now pay attention) a British TV show that is being adapted for American audiences, and the British producers in the States to oversee the production are upset at how horrible the remake is. Matt LeBlanc is the star of the American version of the show.
So basically, it’s the story of every British sitcom ever adapted for American audiences. It’s being created by the co-creators of Friends and Mad About You, which doesn’t bode well. Is it possible that LeBlanc has a sense of humor about himself? Is it possible that this could go better than Lisa Kudrow’s failed meta sitcom, The Comeback? Tune in to Showtime this January to find out for sure.
