NEW YORK: Lisa Kudrow has no problem slipping in and out of her character Valerie Cherish when talking about the return HBO’s “The Comeback.” (The series follows Cherish, a washed up B-list actress desperate for fame and relevance who is filming a reality TV show).

The show aired for one season in 2004 before HBO opted to not bring it back for more episodes, with some critics saying it was ahead of its time — a concern shared by co-creator Michael Patrick King, Kudrow said.

“We were working on it and (King) went, ‘What if we’re too far ahead? That’s not good.’ I said, ‘What are we gonna do about it now? There will be other seasons and then they’ll catch up.’“

When Kudrow found out HBO was interested in bringing back her comedy “The Comeback,” she says she was as surprised as everyone else.

“A year ago? Never would have thought,” said the actress in a recent interview.

They decided to do six episodes and pick up nine years later because the idea of continuing as if no time had passed was “ridiculous,” she said.
