FriendsThe cast of "Friends" will be there for James Burrows.

The six stars of the now-classic NBC sitcom — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, — are reuniting on screen for the first time since 2004. If if you're hoping for a follow-up to the series, sorry! Instead, the cast is getting together to honor veteran director Burrows, who recently helmed his 1,000th episode of television.

Burrows directed many episodes of "Friends," as well as other hit shows including "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Taxi," "Cheers," "Two and a Half Men," and "The Big Bang Theory." He crossed the 1,000-marker line last November with NBC's midseason comedy, "Crowded."

The Burrows tribute is a two-hour-long special being likened to the "Saturday Night Live" 40th anniversary extravaganza. Other luminary casts will also join in the fun, including the stars of "Frasier," "Will & Grace," and "The Big Bang Theory." The special will air Sunday, Feb. 21 at 9 p.m.
