The Buchmans are coming back to TV!
“Mad About You,” the NBC sitcom that ran seven seasons during the 1990s, has gotten the reboot green light! Paul Reiser, creator & producer said “So happy to finally get the band back together.” And yes, co-star Helen Hunt— will return. Sources say it will air on a premium-content channel and the release date is slated for 2019.
Helen Hunt who snagged four Emmy Awards and three Golden Globes for her portrayal of public relations whiz Jamie Buchman, is slated to direct the first episode.
In the original setup, Reiser (a filmmaker) and his marketing whiz wife Hunt played a young, married New York City couple that decides to become parents. And that’s where the story ended. Fast forward to present day and the Buchmans are struggling with empty next syndrome. I think they should consider opening up a dog boarding business and call it “Murray’s Place”. Let’s face it Murray was a big part of what brought heart to “Mad About You”.
I always loved Murray their curious fur baby! Paul & Jamie were a kooky but cool couple who always had each other’s backs and that’s why I will always be “Mad” for “Mad About You”! Find out where to catch the revival at https://www.tvguide.com/news/mad-about-you-revival-spectrum-originals/
