Former ‘Friends’ Star Producing Sitcom for Showtime

Oct 22, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Yet another project is brewing from an alumnus of the Central Perk. The team who are behind the forthcoming new genealogy reality series "Who Do You Think You Are? for NBC are now developing a sitcom for Showtime, Variety reports.

The show, from former "Friends" star Lisa Kudrow and her business partner, Dan Bucatinsky, carries the working title “Rapture.” It’s based on the memoir "Why the Long Face?: The Adventures of a Truly Independent Actor" by Craig Chester, who wrote of growing up gay in a family of born-again Christians. It would be told from the perspective of a nine-year-old.

Don Roos, who is also part of the genealogy series’ creative team, will direct “Rapture” if it gets to pilot stage.
