NBC says forget 'Friends' reunion rumors

Jan. 23, 2006 at 6:59 PM

NEW YORK, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- NBC Universal chief Jeff Zucker Monday said there is not "one ounce of truth" to widespread reports of a multimillion-dollar "Friends" reunion.

Published reports cropped up during the weekend reporting the six "Friends" stars had signed big money deals with NBC to revisit the sitcom for four one-hour episodes.

However, Zucker told "Access Hollywood" the reports had "not one ounce of truth."

He also quashed a rumored "Friends" spinoff starring David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc.

"Friends" ended its 10-year run in May 2004 and remains popular in syndication.
