HBO is giving sitcom star Lisa Kudrow another take.

The cabler released its teaser on Monday for the new episodes of “The Comeback,” where Kudrow plays sitcom actress Valerie Cherish, a faded star who is using reality TV to put her back in the public eye.

In the teaser Kudrow is seen pushing her way through a sea of paparazzi, while voiceover from the show’s pilot recalls the actress trying to convince producers to give her another take by riling up a studio audience. The show, which takes a comedic look inside the television industry, first hit the air in 2005 and lasted one season before being canceled. HBO revived the critically acclaimed series in May.

In July at the Television Critics Assn., Kudrow said the new episodes of the show will explore the question of, “Who are you to yourself and what are you presenting to the world?”

“The Comeback” will return in November.
