Scoop: Matthew Perry's Go On Promotes John Cho to Series Regular
John Cho has been bumped up to series regular on NBC’s new fall series Go On.
The comedy, from former Friends exec producer Scott Silveri, stars Matthew Perry as a sports talk radio host who, while trying to move on from a loss, (eventually) finds solace in his mandatory group-therapy sessions.
Cho, whose last ongoing TV gig was on FlashForward, plays the manager of the radio station that employees Perry’s anger issues-impaired character.
Laura Benanti (The Playboy Club), Julie White (Law & Order: SVU, Transformers), Allison Miller (Terra Nova) and Tyler James Williams (Everybody Hates Chris) also co-star.
As announced Thursday morning, Go On will premiere Wednesday, Aug. 8 immediately following NBC’s Olympics coverage.
