Is there any hope left for a Mad About You revival? Recently, star Paul Reiser spoke with the Tampa Bay Times about the possibility of rebooting the NBC TV show.
As reported earlier, Sony Pictures TV has ordered a revival of the ’90s sitcom. The original comedy starred Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt as Paul and Jamie Buchman, a newly married couple living in New York City. The show ran seven seasons before ending in 1999.
When asked what’s happening with the Mad About You reboot, Reiser said Sony is currently in negotiations but it seems “unlikely” the revival will happen:
It’s kind of stuck in the business end of it now. Sony is trying to figure out from their end; that’s where I just walk away and go, call me when you figure it out. I don’t know what happens at that level. They make their deals with whoever they make their deals with. So we’ll see if it happens. It may not happen. It likely won’t happen. My guess is it won’t happen.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Mad About You? Would you watch the reboot?
