Matthew Perry returns to series television Wednesday night as co-creator and star of the ABC single-camera sitcom "Mr. Sunshine. " For insurance, he has brought along producer Jamie Tarses, who helped develop "Friends," on which Perry starred for a generation, and Thomas Schlamme, who directed and produced Aaron Sorkin's "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," Perry's last-known television address. Not surprisingly, what they arrived at combines the extreme characters of a traditional wacky workplace comedy with the big-canvas naturalism of the Sorkin shows.

Of all the "Friends" alumni, Lisa Kudrow has certainly had the most interesting career. In the seven years since the show ended, Kudrow had done film roles, a star turn in the fabulous and tragically short-lived series "The Comeback," and executive produced the American version of the popular British show "Who Do You Think You Are?" Three years ago, she even ventured into the brave new world of webisodes, with" Web Therapy," a semi-improvised series in which Fiona Wallice (Kudrow), Wharton grad turned "therapist," sees her patients via three-minute video chats.
