Friends star LeBlanc heads back to small screen

LeBlanc will play himself in Episodes – a comedy about the television industry.

The show will follow a husband-and-wife producing team whose hit comedy on British TV is turned into a dumbed-down American sitcom starring the actor.

LeBlanc made Friends fans laugh as Joey Tribbiani for a decade, but failed to find success with his spin-off series Joey, which was cancelled in 2006 after two seasons.

Episodes will begin shooting in London and Hollywood this winter (09). The programme is set for a 2010 debut on America’s Showtime network and the U.K.’s BBC Two.
