What could be better than a Friends reunion with Joey, Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Phoebe and Ross?
Well…not much. But how about a Friends star in a show that has Friends in the very title? It could happen, Central Perk lovers! Here's how: (eonline)
ABC might rename Courteney Cox's series Cougar Town by putting Friends in the title.
Or Neighbors. Or Neighborhooding—though I'm pretty sure that's not a word.
In case you hadn't heard, they are considering renaming the sophomore comedy series, and are currently testing out new names via marketing research. I'm told these are the current contenders:
- Friends and Family
- Friends and Neighbors
- The Cul de Sac Neighborhood
- The End of the Street
- The Neighborhood
- Jules Neighborhooding
One thing seems clear: They're trying to move away from the cougar reference (since Courteney's character Jules doesn't really pounce on young prey anymore) and up the neighborly/Friendly connection. As executive producer Bill Lawrence has joked to us, he'll do anything to get Jennifer Aniston on the show. So maybe this'll do the trick? Or how about Neighborhooding With Jennifer Aniston?
She adds: "I think that the change is just a natural progression of any creative process and the show just naturally moved in a different direction. Premise shows can only take you so far, and at the end of the day you tune in because you love the people you're watching."
Now that has a nice ring to it: Friends You Love Watching.
OK, fine. Jennifer Aniston Neighborhooding it is.
Any ideas for the new C-town name? What do you think of the ones listed above...better or worse than what it is now?
