See 'Friends' Cast Reunite in Promo for James Burrows Tribute

4 February 2016 9:25 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The cast of Friends, sans Matthew Perry, reunites in the promo clip for NBC's tribute to famed TV director and Cheers co-creator James Burrows.

The 40-second spot boasts a brief moment with the Central Perk gang, in which Bravo impresario Andy Cohen asks, "Did you all sign contracts saying that you wouldn't sleep with each other?"  

"David say something," Lisa Kudrow quickly quipped to David Schwimmer, who offered a classic, dumfounded Ross Geller look. 

Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows will also feature appearance from the casts of Mike and Molly, »

'Friends' Stars Asked About Sleeping Together in First NBC Tribute Promo

4 February 2016 7:37 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

NBC's upcoming special is ostensibly a tribute to sitcom director James Burrows, but let's be honest: It's a tribute to '80s-'00s TV nostalgia, especially for "Friends" fans. It's not really a "Friends" reunion without Matthew Perry, but he'll still be part of the show via a separate taped segment. The other five -- Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox Arquette, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer -- gathered for the special, which was recently taped, and NBC just shared the first promo.

In the video, we see shots of interviews with the casts of several classic sitcoms, including "Cheers," "Taxi," "Frasier," "Mike & Molly," "Will & Grace," "The Big Bang Theory," and, yeah, "Friends."

The promo ends with a glimpse of the "Friends" panel, with Jennifer Aniston tripping over Matt LeBlanc to take her seat, and moderator Andy Cohen asking the five-some, "Did you all sign contracts saying that you wouldn't sleep with each other? »

Watch: ‘Friends’ Cast Members Reunite in James Burrows Tribute Teaser

3 February 2016 5:43 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Friends” cast may be there for all of us one more time. NBC’s tribute to director James Burrows will bring together stars of some of America’s most memorable comedies.

The network’s latest promo for the special released Wednesday shows Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer together again for the two-hour show dedicated to the career of comedy director Burrows, who directed 15 “Friends” episodes, including “The One Where Ross and Rachel Take a Break.”

This almost-reunion is missing one key player, though — Matthew Perry is currently in London for “The End of Longing,” which marks his playwriting debut.

Matthew may tape something for the tribute,” Perry’s spokeswoman Lisa Kasteler said. “In other words, this is not the reunion people have been hoping for.”

While Burrows was part of one of the most quoted “Friends” episodes in the history of the ten seasons, »

Us remake of Upper Middle Bogan gets pilot order from CBS

31 January 2016 4:50 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Upper Middle Bogan is set to be remade by CBS for American audiences.

The show's co-creator, Robyn Butler, told 774 ABC Melbourne's Jon Faine that the Us version would be "the same, but in America".

The redo is untitled, and presumably won't have the word "bogan" in the American title.

The original is available in the Us on streaming service Hulu and ABC iview in Australia. A third series will screen on the ABC later this year.

Butler and Wayne Hope, who made the feature Now Add Honey last year, will team with American writer Dan O'Shannon (Cheers, Frasier, Modern Family) on the pilot script. »

David Schwimmer Says the 'Friends' Reunion Was 'Lovely'

29 January 2016 6:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Audiences only have to wait a few more weeks before they can watch the "Friends" cast reunion for themselves, and according to one star, the event was as wonderful as you're imagining.

David Schwimmer spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the gathering, which took place last week at a ceremony saluting legendary television director James Burrows, and featured the casts of several shows Burrows shepherded, including "The Big Bang Theory," "Frasier," and "Will & Grace." The event was taped, and will air on NBC next month.

According to Schwimmer, the experience of reuniting with almost the entire "Friends" crew (minus Matthew Perry, who's in London rehearsing for a play) couldn't have been better, and Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and Matt LeBlanc were all thrilled to be there for Burrows.

"It was just lovely to be in the same room and to honor Jimmy, who we all really love," Schwimmer told Et. »

CBS Orders Comedy Pilot ‘The Kicker’ From ’30 Rock’ Trio, Universal TV

28 January 2016 5:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS is getting into business with the “30 Rock” duo of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, ordering a pilot for the multicamera comedy “The Kicker” penned by sitcom vet Jack Burditt.

The Universal TV comedy revolves around an oddball athlete who drives family, friends and strangers crazy after he’s unexpectedly cut from his pro football team.

Burditt wrote the pilot and exec produces with Fey and Carlock, who are based at Universal. David Miner of 3 Arts Entertainment is also an exec producer.

Burditt is a seasoned writer and showrunner whose credits include “30 Rock,” “Frasier” and “Just Shoot Me.” He also created ABC’s Tim Allen comedy “Last Man Standing.”

Since wrapping her run on seven-season run on “30 Rock” in 2013, Fey has focused on the big screen as an actress but she’s revved up TV production activity through her Little Stranger banner.

Fey and Carlock co-created the Netflix comedy “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, »

Review: 'New Girl' does just fine without Zooey Deschanel in 'No Girl'

27 January 2016 6:35 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on last night's Zooey Deschanel-less "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I'm sorry that the pretzel fell out... When "New Girl" debuted, every aspect of it was so fundamentally built around Deschanel that, when Fienberg and I discussed it on that week's podcast, he understandably dismissed any attempt to discuss her male co-stars. Four seasons later, the show has evolved so much that Jess is arguably a less essential character than either Nick or Schmidt. Deschanel's great, and Jess provides an important dynamic to the loft — the absence of which was the subject of much of "No Girl," where Jess being sequestered on jury duty made things more chaotic than usual — but the show's core relationship, and the driver of much of its comedy, has become the friendship between those two idiots. I'll be happy when Jess returns, but "New Girl" seems set up »

CBS Orders Drama Pilot from Jason Katims, Comedy Based on ‘Superior Donuts’ Play

22 January 2016 3:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS is boosting its pilot slate, picking up a drama from Jason Katims, and a comedy based on the play “Superior Donuts,” Variety has learned. “Bunker Hill” hails from the “Parenthood” creator, and “Superior Donuts” comes from writers Bob Daily, Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan.

“Bunker Hill” revolves around a young Silicon Valley tech titan who enlists a veteran surgeon with a controversial past in starting a hospital with a cutting edge, new-school approach to medicine. Produced by Universal Television and CBS Television Studios, Katims will exec produce with his producing partner Michelle Lee.

For CBS, “Bunker Hill” is another take at a medical drama. This current TV season, the network debuted “Code Black,” but since former chairman Nina Tassler’s tenure, CBS has been wanting to find more shows in the medical genre.

For Katims, the pilot order marks the latest project since “Parenthood” bowed out. Up next, Katims’ Hulu series “The Path, »

The Lineup for A Tribute to James Burrows Is Here, and No, It’s Still Not a Friends Reunion

20 January 2016 11:24 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Friends reunion is here! Just kidding, it is 100 percent not a Friends reunion, so please stop calling it that.

He's done The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Taxi, Cheers, Frasier, Will & Grace, Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, and Mike & Molly. The special will celebrate his 1,000th episode of TV with his new NBC comedy Crowded.Scheduled to be in attendance will be the casts of the following shows. (Others may also be added.)

'Friends' Reunion Update: Matthew Perry Won't Be There for You

15 January 2016 7:20 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sorry, "Friends" fans, but that so-called "reunion" of the six sitcom castmates isn't really a reunion anymore: One of the main friends won't be there for you.

Matthew Perry will be absent when production starts on the planned tribute to legendary sitcom director James Burrows, which was to have featured several casts of his famous series, including "Frasier," "Will & Grace," "The Big Bang Theory," and the "Friends" crew. Perry is currently in London rehearsing for a new play, "The End of Longing," which is set to begin previews in the coming weeks. The Burrows special -- which is airing on NBC next month -- is set to tape on January 24.

Chandler Bing himself, Matthew Perry, will have to send a tape to honour veteran TV director James Burrows at the Friends reunion…

Update

After the initial excitement of waking up to the news of a Friends reunion yesterday, cynicism started to creep in a little. Especially with that quote from NBC’s Bob Greenblatt floating around. “I'm not sure if we can logistically pull that off,” he said, regarding herding the entire Central Perk gang into a room together after 12 years.

Now, after only a day, it seems like his Greenblatt’s concerns were justified. Matthew Perry’s spokeswoman Lisa Kasteler has said that "Matthew will not be attending as he is in London in rehearsals for his play, The End of Longing."

"NBC executives were aware of this prior to their announcement," she added, before mentioning that "Matthew may tape something for the tribute. In other words, »
