Will & Grace could re­turn to TV

Malta Independent - - ENTERTAINMENT -

TV net­work NBC are in talks to re­boot Will & Grace, after the suc­cess of a US elec­tion-themed video, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter has con­firmed talks about a 10episode re­vival are un­der way.

There are said to be no deals in place with the show’s stars or cre­ators yet.

Eric McCormack, De­bra Mess­ing, Me­gan Mul­lally and Sean Hayes were to­gether again in Los An­ge­les on Thurs­day night for a Hil­lary Clin­ton fundraiser.

The cast were brought to­gether for the first time in a decade in Septem­ber by one of the show’s cre­ators, Max Mutch­nick, for a short film based around the US elec­tion.

The 10-minute clip has had more than six mil­lion views on Youtube.

Speak­ing at the time, Mess­ing who plays Grace - told the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter she would “never say never” about a re­vival.

She hinted that a stream­ing chan­nel could be a nat­u­ral fit be­cause a re­turn to net­work TV could be a prob­lem, due to the cast mem­bers’ busy sched­ules.

“I think that the lo­gis­tics of all of our lives - there would just be way too many things to ham­mer out. But for some­thing short­er­lived and maybe having the lim­i­ta­tions of be­ing on net­work TV lifted may give us a fun, fresh op­por­tu­nity be­cause we could be re­ally, re­ally naughty!”

Will & Grace ran for eight sea­sons be­tween 1998 and 2006 and won 16 Emmy awards.

The show, about in­te­rior de­signer Grace and her gay flat­mate Will, earned praise for bring­ing gay tele­vi­sion char­ac­ters into the main­stream.
