LeBlanc to star as himself on 'Episodes'

Rex Features

Matt LeBlanc has signed on to play himself on upcoming TV show Episodes.

The 42-year old, who has not appeared on screen since short-lived Friends spinoff Joey went off the air in 2006, is to team with David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik for the series, TV Guide reports.

Episodes will centre on a British couple whose television programme is turned into an Americanised sitcom that stars LeBlanc.

He said: "Jeffrey and David have a great idea - I love it. And I am so glad I got the part, seeing someone else play Matt LeBlanc would have been devastating."

Production on the series, co-produced by Showtime and the BBC, will begin on six episodes this winter in London and Hollywood.

Episodes is scheduled to debut in 2010 on the BBC and Showtime.
