EDINBURGH, Scotland -- Eric McCormack says he's through with sitcoms. The former "Will & Grace" star said he was reluctant to try to follow up the hit gay guy-meets-straight gal comedy, which wrapped up in May after eight seasons on NBC.

McCormack told an audience at the Edinburgh International Television Festival on Saturday that we would like to return to the small screen, but "probably not in a sitcom, because I don't think I can follow 'Will and Grace,' as an experience for me.

"The experience day-to-day was about as perfect as you can get," he said.

McCormack, who recently starred in an off-Broadway production of Neil LaBute's "Some Girls," said he wants to focus on stage and film roles.

He was in Edinburgh to promote "Lovespring International," the improvised comedy produced by his company, Big Cattle Productions.

The series set in a dysfunctional dating service airs in the United States on Lifetime and will screen on Britain's Sky One in January.
