HBO May Bring Back Lisa Kudrow's 'The Comeback'


The network reportedly aims to revive the cult comedy as a limited/event series.

HBO is poised to revive Lisa Kudrow's "The Comeback". The premium cable channel is in "preliminary discussions" with the series creators/executive producers Michael Partick King and star Kudrow to bring back the comedy.

Deadline first reported the news and TVLine has confirmed it. It's said that the plan is to resurrect it as a limited/event series. The show, which debuted in June 2005, was canceled after just one 13-episode season.

The docu-style single-camera comedy centered on former sitcom star Valerie Cherish (Kudrow), who got a reality show camera following her as she tried to re-ignite her career with a role on a new sitcom. It also starred Malin Akerman and Kellan Lutz.

The show was considered to be ahead of its time, but achieved cult status following its cancellation. It earned three Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Kudrow.
