will and grace revival first look

Will and Grace have made a miraculous comeback, and it’s all thanks to a “Get Out the Vote” sketch. No one was expecting a late ’90s/early 2000s sitcom about two gay guys and their straight girlfriends to be so relevant in 2017, but a hop, skip, and a Fox News joke later, and we’re as timely as you can get!

The first look at the Will and Grace revival teased new footage from the series return on NBC this month, interspersed with some footage from the good old days when ’90s TV was slightly grainier, and the world was a little less terrible. At least Jack has Grindr now.

Watch the new Will and Grace trailer below.

NBC will have a Television Critics Association panel with the cast and creators of Will & Grace later today, but in the morning, executives spoke about bringing the hit sitcom back. Creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan told Entertainment Weekly that the new 12 episode series would ignore the series finale in which Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) have children and husbands.

Too bad Russ has already filled the week’s /Film: The Movie quota, because this post is writhing on the floor for our fave bad joke. Director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Kinsey) is developing and writing a proposed half-hour series for HBO set in the hectic and catty world of Hollywood movie blogging. If the network takes the next step forward, THR reports that Condon would direct the pilot episode, in addition to being the series’ executive-producer.

Oddly titled, Tilda, with no relation to the ivory actress, the lead character is said to be a female, take-no-prisoners veteran writer/blogger, which automatically conjures Deadline’s L.A.-based Nikki Finke, followed by the less polarizing and /Filmcast-friended Anne Thompson. I checked and was disappointed to find that Finke has not yet commented on the series using a characteristic “TOLDJA!” and complimentary clip art of a monitor and a steaming cup of joe.

Sharing writing and producing duties on Tilda is Cynthia Mort, who worked on Will & Grace and created the sexually provocative, short-lived HBO series (and Adam Scott-starrer) Tell Me You Love Me. Regarding Tilda, it could offer a field day for insidery jokes and awkward sweatshirt-clad cameos from West Coast peers. Further blending the worlds of film and high-concept teevee, Condon recently helmed the pilot for Showtime’s cancer-topical comedy series The C Word.
