Sony Television has reportedly begun informal talks with actors Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt about reviving NBC sitcom “Mad About You” for a limited event series eighteen years after the show wrapped its run.
Reiser, who co-created the series with Danny Jacobson, is allegedly leading the charge to resurrect the show with the new episodes to revolve around Paul and Jamie grappling with empty-nest syndrome in the wake of their now seventeen-year-old daughter Mabel’s admission to college.
Reiser previously admitted he had long been opposed to the idea of a revival, partly because the series concluded with a flash-forward set twenty-two years into the future. More recently though he appeared to change his mind during press rounds for the second season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things”.
NBC is reportedly not currently involved in the discussions.
