and this news of another friend of the Hollow...
Matthew Perry is returning to broadcast television with a single-camera comedy.
The "Friends" alum is set to star in, co-write and executive produce the untitled project produced by Sony Pictures TV.
Perry, who turned 40 in August, conceived the comedy, in which he will play a self-involved manager of a second-rate sports arena who begins to re-evaluate his life on his 40th birthday.
After meeting with a number of writers, Perry teamed with Sony-based Alex Barnow and Mark Firek, who will pen the script with him and exec produce.
Thomas Schlamme, who worked with Perry on "Friends," "The West Wing" and "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," is on board to direct and exec produce.
