Episode Summary

The cast and creative team of Friends discuss why it took so long for Rachel and Ross to become a couple, and other topics. This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors Friends, a comedy about six friends in their twenties who live together in New York City and share a favorite haunt, a coffee bar called Central Perk. Robert M. Batscha moderates the following panelists: series creators/executive producers David Crane and Marta Kauffman; executive producer Kevin Bright; co-executive producer Michael Borkow; producer Alexa Junge; writers Jeff Astrof and Mike Sikowitz; and cast members Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani), and Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing). Panelists touch on such topics as: Friends being the result of the creators' attempt to go in a different direction from their last show, 'Dream On;' changes requested by network executives after hearing the show's premise; the casting process; how the cast learned "to click;" and the manner in which the actors helped the characters evolve.moreless
