Celebrity Gossip: Paul Reiser, Amber Heard, Dwayne Johnson and More!
PAUL REISER SAYS MAD ABOUT YOU REVIVAL UNLIKELY: Womp! After getting fans excited for the past year, Paul Reiser is walking it back his claims about an imminent revival of Mad About You reboot. “It’s kind of stuck in the business end of it now,” Reiser said of the new series in an interview with the Tampa Bay Times. The rebooted version would have focused on Reiser and Helen Hunt’s characters dealing with their empty nest after their daughter leaves for college. Reiser continued: “Sony is trying to figure out from their end; that’s where I just walk away and go, call me when you figure it out. I don’t know what happens at that level. They make their deals with whoever they make their deals with. So we’ll see if it happens. It may not happen. It likely won’t happen. My guess is it won’t happen.” NBC, ABC and Fox have passed on a revival. Reiser is holding out very tenuous hope for a streamer to pick it up. Would you tune in?
