Matt Leblanc Gears Up For 'Friend' Joey's Own Show
As the end of hit comedy FRIENDS approaches, star MATT LeBLANC is in talks to appear in a spin-off series based on his loveable character JOEY TRIBBIANI.
According to the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER - LeBlanc, NBC and production company WARNER BROS. are involved in "stepped up negotiations" for the mooted series.
Friends writers/executive producers SCOTT SILVERI and SHANA GOLDBERG-MEEHAN are set to write a pilot script if an agreement is reached.
And if the show is a hit, LeBlanc will be in illustrious company - the enormously successful comedy FRASIER is a spin-off from star KELSEY GRAMMER's character in CHEERS.21/07/2003 17:07
