A third member of the “Friends” ensemble comedy is making a return to series television, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Matthew Perry will star in, co-write and executive produce an untitled single-camera comedy for Sony Pictures TV, which is being pitched to networks this week.

He’ll play the manager of a sports arena who starts to re-evaluate his life when he turns 40. Thomas Schlamme ("Friends," "The West Wing," "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip") will direct.

In addition to Perry, Courteney Cox is starring in ABC’s “Cougar Town” and Matt LeBlanc is set to star in a Showtime/BBC series “Episodes.”
