"Friends" fans, rejoice. Matt LeBlanc is back in a television series and this time, it's pretty darn good.
LeBlanc plays himself -- or at least, a version of himself -- in a new sitcom premiering on Showtime Sunday night. "Episodes" is about a married British screenwriting team who have a huge hit with their classy, award-winning show in England, and are then enticed to bring that hit to Hollywood.
The writers are promised the moon, but of course, once they get to Hollywood, there are huge obstacles. For starters, the buffoonish network executive (John Pankow) who lured them to the states doesn't like their established star, a distinguished British actor who has led the series for four years. The exec has a great idea for a replacement: the out-of-work Matt LeBlanc.
