    "It’s kind of stuck in the business end of it now," Reiser told the Tampa Bay Times on Monday. "Sony is trying to figure out from their end; that’s where I just walk away and go, call me when you figure it out. I don’t know what happens at that level. They make their deals with whoever they make their deals with. So we’ll see if it happens. It may not happen. It likely won’t happen. My guess is it won’t happen." Reiser and Helen Hunt signed deals with Sony TV in April to reprise their famous NBC roles. Reiser says of the revival being in potential limbo, "It’s like, ‘You know, guys, I was very happy not doing it for 20 years, and then you invited us back. And now if you can’t make it happen, it’s not a big deal.’ Things happen, they don’t happen." Reiser says if a Mad About You revival does indeed happen, "it wouldn’t go to NBC, probably. In a dream world, it would be on a streaming (platform). I don’t know if we’re going to do it, but if it did come back, I would much rather do it on a streaming platform than a broadcast."
