Posted Saturday December 14, 2013 1:40 PM GMT

Resurrecting an old family favorite, Matthew Perry is slated to revive "The Odd Couple," and send it to CBS.

Starring as the disorganized Oscar Madison, Matthew will create an updated version of the popular series, which has aired as a Broadway stage show, a Hollywood movie, in addition to the original series.

“Ever since seeing the movie 'The Odd Couple' when I was 10 years old, it has been a dream for me to play Oscar Madison,” Matthew said. “To be given the opportunity to develop a modern version of it for CBS has put a permanent smile across my face."

Although the role of the fussy Felix Unger has not yet been revealed, Deadline had revealed that the former "Friends" star will serve as the sitcom's co-writer and executive producer.
