Popular 1990s Sitcom May Be Revived

Dec 27, 2017  •  Post A Comment

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.

  1. Hopefully, someone will release the complete original series on DVD of “Mad About You” (with UNCUT episodes) soon.

    The complete series DVD set of “Mad About You” currently available only includes the syndicated episodes, with 4-5 minutes missing from each episode. Some episodes only run 20 minutes on the DVD set— when the episodes first aired in the 1990s on NBC they were closer to 25 minutes. Viewers, and customers, are turned off by these edited syndicated episodes that don’t even run 22 minutes.
