I’m old enough to remember The Odd Couple when it aired on TV back in the ’70s.
From 1970-1975, the original sitcom starred Tony Randall as Felix Unger and Jack Klugman as Oscar Madison.
Forty years later, The Odd Couple returns as RTL CBS Entertainment HD brings it back to the small screen on March 13, Friday at 9:55 PM.
This time around, The Odd Couple stars Matthew Perry as endearing slob Oscar Madison and Thomas Lennon as uptight neat freak Felix Unger.
The two former college buddies become unlikely roommates after the demise of their marriages. Not long after Oscar lets Felix move in, Oscar fears he’s made a monumental mistake.
Oscar’s jack-of-all-trades assistant, Dani, and his long-time agent, Teddy, have their hands full trying to keep Oscar’s career as a sports radio host on track as he deals with his new living situation.
Fortunately, their quirky next door neighbour Emily helps Felix adapt to his new life as a bachelor and rein in his many eccentricities.
Despite how exasperated Oscar and Felix make each other, in the end, these mismatched friends agree they can help each other move on from their divorces and make their crazy living arrangement work.
Aside from starring in The Odd Couple, Matthew Perry also serves as one of the show’s executive producers. Also in the cast are Lindsay Sloane, Yvette Nicole Brown and Wendell Pierce.
