Matt LeBlanc to play himself on Episodes
Showtime and BBC have commissioned brand new series “Episodes,” a six-part series starring “Friends” star Matt LeBlanc.
The show from creators David Crane (“Friends”) and Jeffrey Klarik (“Mad About You”) will centre on a couple whose hit UK TV show has an American remake.
“We jumped at the chance to get involved with this cockeyed look at network television told through the eyes of unsuspecting British producers who don’t know what hit them when they enter the lion’s den of Hollywood,” Showtime President of Entertainment Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. “And Matt LeBlanc … is icing on the cake.”
LeBlanc added: “I am so glad I got the part. Seeing someone else play Matt LeBlanc would have been devastating.”
