Helen Hunt & Paul Reiser Talk 'Mad About You' Revival

Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt snap a photo together while attending the 2019 PaleyFest Fall Preview with their show Mad About You on Saturday (September 8) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The co-stars chatted up the revival of their hit, fan favorite show.

“We wanted it to be the things that it always was, which was funny, No. 1; about something we give a s— about; and that it had that tension between how beautiful love can be and how hard it can be to love someone. That tension is the show,” Helen said, via Variety.

“We had to keep in mind who we’re doing this for,” Paul added. “I don’t know if anyone who didn’t watch the original will watch this.”

Helen also talked about the first episode and the opening scene of the revival.

“I thought, if I do the first one, something will be lost because there will be one less set of eyes and I’ll be doing a bunch of jobs, but something will be gained, too, because I’m a detail freak,” she said. “And the details of the first episode matter: the first shot we have is the things [Mabel’s] taking to college, and I stole some things from my daughter’s room and made sure they aged the guitar. I care about all of that in a way that maybe somebody else wouldn’t care as much.”
