For “Mad About You” fans, your cup is about to runneth over with not only a reboot of the beloved comedy series, but also a special release of all 164 episodes of the classic 1990s sitcom.
Twenty years after the Peabody-, Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning NBC comedy wrapped up its seven-season run in May 1999, Spectrum Originals is reuniting stars Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt for a new limited series, debuting for the holidays in late 2019. To set the stage for reboot, Spectrum will make all 164 episodes of the original series available free on-demand, exclusively for Spectrum subscribers, beginning Aug. 1.
“Over seven seasons of the beloved original series, Reiser and Hunt played Paul and Jamie Buchman, a married couple in New York City who mine the gentle humor in domesticity and life’s everyday situations,” Spectrum said in an announcement. “For its limited-series return, ‘Mad About You’ will explore the fertile ground of modern marriage through the eyes of the Buchmans as empty-nesters.”
“Mad About You” is produced by Sony Pictures Television in association with Comedy Dynamics. Peter Tolan is showrunner, executive producer and writer. Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser executive produce alongside Brian Volk-Weiss, Michael Pelmont and Matthew Ochacher. Danny Jacobson, who co-created the show with Reiser, will serve as an executive consultant.
