Pilot Scoop: Former Friend David Schwimmer Plots TV Comeback in ABC Comedy Irreversible
David Schwimmer is dipping his toe back in the TV water with a lead role in Irreversible, a single-camera comedy pilot at ABC.
The project, which is based on the Israeli hit Bilti Hafich, will find the former Friends star playing one half of a somewhat eccentric, self-absorbed couple.
Segahl Avin, who co-created the Israeli version, penned the script and will serve as an EP alongside Rescue Me‘s Peter Tolan.
If Irreversible snags a series pickup, it will mark Schwimmer’s first full-time series gig since wrapping his decade-long run on Friends in 2004.
