Actress Amanda Peet will star in former Friends actor Matthew Perry's new TV series - STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP.

The show is set behind the scenes of a fictional broadcasting network's late-night comedy sketch show.

Peet will play JORDAN McDEERE, the newly appointed president of the network, and Perry a genius comedy writer.

They have previously co-starred in The Whole Nine Yards and The Whole Ten Yards.

West Wing creators Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme came up with the concept for the show.
