DETROIT - "Will & Grace" has already made a comeback, but are more revivals on the horizon?
Deadline reports that NBC is actually mulling the return of several hit shows from the last decade.
The shows include "The Office," "30 Rock," "The West Wing," and "ER."
NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt told Deadline that "The Office" is the most likely revival scenario.
“We often talk about The Office, I’ve talked to Greg four times over the past few years. It’s always, ‘maybe some day but not now’,” Greenblatt told Deadline. “There is certainly an open invitation but we don’t have anything happening right now. If he wants to do it, I would do it.”
Greenblatt also told Deadline that a "30 Rock" revival could happen, even talking to show creator Tina Fey about the idea.
“I’d say to Tina ‘Hey, you think some more 30 Rock makes any sense?’ She’d say, I don’t know maybe.'"
Greenblatt has also talked to Aaron Sorkin and John Wells about "The West Wing" and "ER" revivals.
"I keep saying to him, ‘Do you want to do The West Wing again, wouldn’t it be great to do it?’ He says, ‘You know I love that show and some day I’d love to revisit it, but it’s not going to happen right now.’ I’ve said it to John Wells on ER, but there is nothing concrete except Miami Vice which is something that we are reviving.”
"If Tina called and said ‘I’d do 30 Rock,’ I’d do it in a heartbeat, even for a limited run. The same about The Office," said Greenblatt.
