Synopsis

TV Series (1994-2004). 10 Seasons. 236 episodes. Six young people from New York, on their own and struggling to survive in the real world, find the companionship, comfort and support they get from each other to be the perfect antidote to the pressures of life. Rachel Green, a former popular girl in high school living off of daddy's money, is independant now with a baby of her own that she had with Ross Gellar, a former flame that was temporarily rekindled after a drunken night which resulted in the baby. Ross is a paleontologist, he now lives in an apartment with Rachel, across the way from his sister, Monica Geller-Bing, a chef, and her new husband, Chandler Bing. Monica is a clean freak and very neurotic about it! and Chandler is laid back and uses humor as a defense mechanism. Across the hall from Monica and Chandler is Joey Tribiani, who now lives alone after Rachel moved out to move in with Ross because of the baby. Joey is a not-so-bright but sweet actor who recently made a big war movie and is on Days Of Our Lives. Another friend who we can't forget about is Pheobe Buffay, who is now engaged and soon to be married to Mike. She is a free spirited masseuse who sings crazy songs like "Smelly Cat". Their relationships with each other: -Rachel Green and Monica Gellar were best friends in high school, and after Rachel ran out on her wedding with Barry, she moved in with Monica, this was in the first season. -Monica Gellar and Ross Gellar are brother and sister. So Ross knew Rachel also from high school, when he had a crush on her. -Ross Gellar and Chandler Bing met in college and became best friends, Chandler met Rachel and Monica when Ross brought him home on Thanksgiving. Pheobe Buffay was Monica's old roomate before the show started and Joey Tribiani came into the picture when he moved in with Chandler, also before the show started. It's complicated, but one thing is for sure, they are all best "Friends."

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox Arquette, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer star in this Emmy-winning comedy about six close-knit young friends living in New York City.

Beginning its tenth season as the leadoff series on NBC’s enormously popular “Must See TV” Thursday-night lineup, “Friends” continues to garner critical acclaim and ratings success. The show reigns as the number-one comedy on television among adults 18-49 for five years in a row.

Since its debut season (1994-95), “Friends” has received 55 Emmy Award nominations, including six for Outstanding Comedy Series, which the show won this year. The cast won a Screen Actors Guild Award in 1996 for Outstanding Ensemble Performance in a Comedy Series and has been nominated four times (1996, 1997, 1998, 2002) for a Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy. “Friends” won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite New Comedy Series in its first season, and has since won three more times as Favorite Comedy Series including 2002.

The series focuses on the friendship of three men and three women who frequently gather at each other’s apartments and share sofa space at Greenwich Village’s “Central Perk” coffeehouse. Monica (Courteney Cox Arquette) is a chef with an obsession for neatness and order in her life. She is also married to Chandler (Matthew Perry), a dry wit who is never at a loss for words. Across the hall are Chandler’s longtime roommate Joey (Matt LeBlanc), a womanizing actor currently on the soap opera “Days of Our Lives,” and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Monica’s best friend from high school.

Across the alley from Monica and Chandler is Monica’s hapless brother Ross (David Schwimmer), a paleontology professor who has been divorced three times, including once from Rachel. Although Rachel is no longer romantically involved with Ross, they share the responsibility of raising their newborn daughter, Emma. Rounding out the circle of friends is Monica’s ex-roommate, Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), an offbeat, eternally optimistic folk singer and massage therapist.

The series was created by the Emmy Award-winning writing team of Marta Kauffman & David Crane. Emmy and CableACE Award-winning producer Kevin S. Bright is executive producer with Kauffman and Crane. Scott Silveri, Shana Goldberg-Meehan, Andrew Reich and Ted Cohen also serve as executive producers. “Friends” is a Bright/Kauffman/Crane Production in association with Warner Bros. Television.
