Sneak Peeks – ABC’s “Mr. Sunshine” (New Series)

Matthew Perry returns to TV to try and take a stab at Courtney Cox’s return to fame after friends (with Cougar Town). Until Cox’s show this season, none of the former Friends’ stars had much success on the small screen after Friends ended, but Perry’s giving it a shot with a new comedy that will premiere midseason. We have two sneak peeks for you below.

Matthew Perry stars as Ben Donovan, the self-involved manager of a second-rate San Diego sports arena, who begins to re-evaluate his life on his 40th birthday. Working alongside him is his boss and arena owner Crystal — attractive, powerful and highly erratic; Alice – the cute, tomboyish marketing director and Ben’s friend with benefits; Alonzo — a former basketball player, handsome and unbelievably happy; Ben’s assistant Heather — pretty, sweet, but terrifying because she once lit a boyfriend on fire; Crystal’s son Roman — sweet-faced, clueless and Ben’s newest employee; and a hapless operations crew whom Ben refers to collectively as the “Steves.”

‘Mr. Sunshine’stars Matthew Perry (‘Friends’) as Ben, Allison Janney (‘The West Wing’) as Crystal, Andrea Anders as Alice, James Lesure as Alonzo, Nate Torrence as Roman and Portia Doubleday as Heather.

Matthew Perry, Alex Barnow, Marc Firek, Jamie Tarses and Thomas Schlamme are executive producers. The Pilot was written by Matthew Perry and Alex Barnow & Marc Firek and directed by Thomas Schlamme. “Mr. Sunshine” is a Matthew Perry Production, Shoe Money Productions, Barnow and Firek Productions and FanFare Production in association with Sony Pictures Television.
