HBO In Talks To Bring Back 'The Comeback'
We may be seeing the return of cult favorite The Comeback and we DO want to see that!!
Deadline's Nellie Andreeva exclusively reports:
I’ve learned that HBO is in discussions with the series creators/executive producers Michael Partick King, who also served as director, and Lisa Kudrow, who toplined the show, about doing a new installment almost a decade after the first season. I hear it is being envisioned as a limited/event series. Comeback, which debuted in June 2005, was a docu-style single-camera comedy starring Kudrow as washed-up sitcom actress Valerie Cherish, who gets a reality show documenting her attempt at a career comeback with a role on a new sitcom.
“Every time we get together for lunch, we’re talking about, ‘OK, so what would happen next?’,” Kudrow told Bravo talk show host Andy Cohen last summer. Where do they envision Valerie a decade later? “Taking classes at the Actor’s Studio. Just because,” Kudrow told Cohen. “We really want her to be on a Bravo show.” Wouldn’t she be perfect for the Real Housewives franchise!”
We'd love to see the HBO series make it's own Comeback!
Would you want to reunite with Valerie Cherish ten years later, Instincters? Where do you think the character would be today??
