Looks like we’re closer to a Mad About You revival. Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser have closed their deals with Sony Pictures TV to reprise their roles as married New York couple Paul and Jamie Buchman, sources have confirmed. The show’s co-creator Danny Jacobson also has signed on to return. Talks have ongoing for several months.
Mad About You ran seven seasons from 1992 to 1999 on NBC and won multiple Emmy and Golden Globe Awards. Sony TV also produced a Mad About You adaptation in China. It has been reported that the revival, which was created by Reiser and Jacobson, would reconnect audiences with present-day Paul and Jamie, who are suffering from a case of empty nest syndrome as their 17-year-old daughter Mabel goes to college.
