ABC Orders Matthew Perry Starrer Mr. Sunshine

ON

ABC has given a pilot order to “Mr. Sunshine,” a comedy starring Matthew Perry, reports Variety.

Should it go to series, Perry would join fellow “Friends” alum Courteney Cox on the network, which just picked up her show, “Cougar Town,” for a second season.

“Mr. Sunshine” centers on a San Diego sports arena manager who goes through a mid-life crisis when he turns 40.

Perry is executive producing the pilot with Thomas Schlamme, who’s directing, as well as Jamie Tarses. Perry wrote the pilot with Alex Barnow and Marc Firek, who will executive produce as well.
