Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
Have been clamoring for a reunion of the popular TV sitcom TV guides. Matt Rose joined me earlier to talk about that re union. They filmed it last month. So it's actually in the can. This friends Reunion was supposed to launch HBO. Mac's last year was going to be the big event was gonna Harold this new streamer that's attached HBO. But of course, Kobe got in the way and it took a while to get all these people back together again. And they did it, which is the show went off the air making history. With each of the cast members getting a million dollar an episode for the last two seasons. They were paid something in the range of like 2.5 million each to assemble again. Then again, you think about it. Before 10 years. There were no bigger names on TV than Ross and Rachel, Monica and Chandler, Phoebe and Joey. And it made such superstars out of Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, Lisa Coud, Romana Plunk. They've all been working ever since, and now they come back together to remember the good old days. They're back on the soundstage where the Magic happened for 10 seasons and friends, You know, it's been off the air for a long time, but it's never really been off. The air was a huge hit in syndication. It was a major fixture for Netflix. It was one of the things that people I just kept watching and watching. And when the show moved from Netflix, HBO, Max that creates headlines in and of itself, So the alert friends has never really gone away and no doubt HBO. Max is hoping this also will help boost its membership. Well, no doubt. Definitely. There's gonna be a draw to get people to watch and see how they're interacting with each other. They will be reminisce. They're not going to play the characters they once played, Although I think there's gonna be some readings of some of the Major moment from the show. And of course, they're gonna look back on the big moments. They have guest stars like Reese Witherspoon, who played Rachel Sister for a couple of episodes. Tom Sell it comes in. He romanced Monica for a while so other big name stars will be coming in and reflecting James Corden is going to be sort of the emcee of the whole affair, So it should be a lot of fun to watch. And again as if anybody wants to know if the show is ever going to get rebooted. Well, look at that 2.5 million price tag just to get them all in the same room. I don't think anybody could afford them again. That's TV guides. Matt Roush, which exports next. It's 1 13 look,.
