Matt LeBlanc returns with Episodes season 2
Written by : thetvking published Saturday 5th May 2012
Matt LeBlanc made famous for playing Joey in Friends(and Joey) as if you didn't already know, has joined up with British actors Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan for some more fun and frolics filming the brilliant Episodes.
Episodes is a joint venture between the BBC and US cable network Showtime. As a result the series will air in the UK first and then in the US 2 months later.
The half hour comedy is about a British couple Beverly and Sean Lincoln who have written and produced a hit TV show in the UK. All is great until Hollywood come calling and want to adapt the show for the US market while still maintaining the husband and wife duo to lead the show. It becomes evident that while the network liked the idea of the UK show they wanted to spice it up LA style. This results in Matt LeBlanc playing a vastly inflated version of himself as a hockey coach who has a thing for the sexy librarian. So an exact remake of the original which stared Richard Griffiths as a old-fashioned Headmaster at a boarding school.
Episodes will air Friday nights at 10PM (11PM in Wales) and is set to return to BBC2 on Friday 11th May. This time around Episodes gets a 9 part “season” an improvement on the 7 episodes in season 1.
Episodes will begin in the USA on Showtime with the season 2 premiere Sunday, July 1st at 10:30 PM ET/PT.
Episode 1 focuses on the premier of “Pucks” in the US, and how the trio have to work through their issues. After Beverly's fling with Matt and the fall-out that ensued.
