In a sneak peek released by NBC ahead of the show, Kudrow revealed that director Burrows had been instrumental to their friendship that transcends to real life. “I think it was unspoken but we instinctively felt like we need to be friends, we need get along, we need to connect. So we started playing poker and Jimmy gave us his room so we could have a bigger hangout room for us,” she said in the video. As of Saturday, the video had been viewed for more than 3 million times on YouTube. Also, it was viewed for more than 2 million times and had more than 19,000 likes on Facebook.
The casts of “Cheers,” “Taxi,” “Frasier,” and “Will & Grace” are all going to have a mini-reunion too. Casts of the current running shows “Mike & Molly” and “The Big Bang Theory” are all going to be in the show too.
