Jan 13, 2016  •  Post A Comment

A reunion of all six main cast members of the sitcom “Friends” is a go at NBC, although it may not be exactly what fans of the long-running comedy series are hoping for. TVLine.com reports that Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry will regroup as part of a tribute to veteran TV director and creator James Burrows.

The occasion is a celebration of the 1,000th television episode directed by Burrows, who has been behind the cameras on some of the biggest comedy hits of all time. Besides co-creating “Cheers” and directing 15 episodes of “Friends,” Burrows has had a hand in a long list of hits that includes “Frasier,” “3rd Rock from the Sun,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Taxi,” “Laverne & Shirley,” “Will & Grace,” “Mike & Molly,” “Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory,” just to name a few.

The stars of many Burrows shows will be a part of the special, set to tape this month in L.A. to air Feb. 21 on NBC.

  1. If they all show up at the Emmys, Golden Globes or Academy Awards does that count as a reunion?
