A comedy series that had a successful broadcast run in the 1990s has been in informal talks for a revival. TVLine reports that Sony has been talking with Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt about a limited run for a new “Mad About You.”
The original series ran seven seasons on NBC before wrapping in 1999. NBC is reportedly not involved in talks for the potential revival.
“Reiser, who also co-created ‘Mad About You’ with Danny Jacobson, is allegedly leading the charge to resurrect the show,” TVLine reports. Sony wasn’t commenting.
“According to an insider, the new episodes would likely revolve around Paul and Jamie grappling with empty-nest syndrome in the wake of now-17-year-old daughter Mabel’s admission to college,” TVLine adds.
