Former "Friends" star Matthew Perry is re turning to NBC.
Perry will join D.L. Hughley and Steven Weber in an untitled drama set behind the scenes at a fictional long-running sketch-comedy series in the mold of "Saturday Night Live." Perry will play a genius comic writer who was forced from the sketch show after a dispute with the network. Weber will play the network's ambitious chairman and Hughley one of the sketch show's stars.
Written by Aaron Sorkin, the drama ignited a bidding war between CBS and NBC which reportedly paid over $3 million for the pilot.
