Matt LeBlanc Joins 'Episodes' Showtime Sitcom

Former Friends actor Matt LeBlanc is set to star in a new Showtime comedy, Episodes.

The sitcom is a single-camera comedy series about a British couple whose hit UK show is turned into a dumbed-down American sit-com starring LeBlanc (as himself).

“[Creators David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik] have a great idea — I love it,” said LeBlanc. “I am really excited to be working with Showtime and the BBC. And I am so glad I got the part, seeing someone else play Matt LeBlanc would have been devastating.”

Here’s a synopsis of the show: When a successful British husband-and-wife comedy team are lured by Hollywood to produce a new version of their hit series for a stateside audience, they’re initially thrilled at the prospects. But they soon realize what the American execs have in store for their precious show – including replacing the erudite British lead with the quintessential comedy star, Matt LeBlanc – and begin to sink deeper into the quicksand that is the TV business. Before long it’s clear that not just the couple’s show is at stake, but perhaps even their marriage.
