“Go On” brings Matthew Perry back to NBC for the first time in five-plus years, and while the new show is an ensemble piece too, it’s pretty far removed from “Friends.”
Perry plays Ryan King, a glib sports-radio host who’s been avoiding dealing with his wife’s death in a car accident. He reluctantly starts attending group therapy sessions, and then starts taking them over from not-necessarily-qualified group leader Lauren (Laura Benanti, who was hands down the best thing about “The Playboy Club” this season).
The show’s cast also includes Allison Miller (“Terra Nova”), Tyler James Williams (“Everybody Hates Chris”), Julie White (“Transformers”), Bill Cobbs, Suzy Nakamura and Khary Payton. You’ll glimpse John Cho in the trailer too, but he’s not listed as a series regular. “Friends” writer-producer Scott Silveri created “Go On,” which will air on Tuesdays in the fall.
What do you think of the trailer? Is “Go On” going on your list of shows to watch next season?
