"Go On" (TV show) on NBC is a single-camera comedy series starring Matthew Perry ("Friends," "Mr. Sunshine").

Misery loves company. Unless you're sportscaster Ryan King (Perry) who thinks misery should just be left alone. After taking some time off, Ryan — who recently lost his wife in a car accident — is now ready to get back to work. And while he seems like his same old charming, cocky self, his boss won't set him back on the air until he seeks counseling. So, Ryan reluctantly joins a support group with one goal in mind: get in, get out and get back on the radio as quickly as possible.

Played by the fast-talking, sarcastic, and charismatic Perry, Ryan gives grief a real run for its money. Within one day of group therapy, he hijacks the meeting and suddenly the downtrodden are cajoled into playing a game of "who's got the best sob story?" And in no time all of them are battling it out, trying to one-up each other's despair. Now, this is fun! Ryan's total lack of interest in healing might be just what this group needs — and maybe, exactly what he needs to move on with his life.

The cast also includes Tony winner Laura Benanti ("The Playboy Club"), Julie White ("Transformers"), Suzy Nakamura ("Dodgeball"), Khary Payton ("General Hospital") and Allison Miller ("Terra Nova").

From the Emmy-winning writer and executive producer Scott Silveri ("Perfect Couples," "Friends") comes a series that proves grief can be good. Todd Holland ("Malcolm in the Middle") and Karey Burke ("Free Agents," "Miss/Guided") also serve as executive producers. The pilot was directed by Holland. "Go On" is a production of Universal Television, Dark Toy Entertainment and Silver & Gold Productions.
