MediaLink founder and CEO Michael Kassan shares his insights on the streaming wars and upcoming services we will see in 2020, such as NBC's Peacock.
After years of mini reunions on TV and a selfie that nearly broke Instagram, the Friends cast several months ago started conversations for a full-blown unscripted reunion special on the upcoming streaming platform HBO Max.
"Wolfgang is one of the most accomplished chefs of our time and for decades has been the go-to restaurateur and caterer for the biggest names and events in Hollywood and across the country", said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer HBO Max, president TNT, TBS, and TruTV. "Today it's just maybe".
The special, in which co-creators/executive producers Marta Kauffman and David Crane were expected to have some involvement, was created to help launch Friends reruns on HBO Max.
It appears that the highly anticipated reunion special featuring the cast and creators of the hit sitcom, announced in November, is still up in the air.
When the special was announced, it was reported that Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc would all participate, as well as the show's original creators, David Crane and Marta Kauffman.
"Listen, we would love for there to be something but we don't know what that something is", said the actress.
Friends has been in the zeitgeist with the worldwide celebration of the show's 25th anniversary.
