1996 THE CAST OF THE TV HIT SERIES "FRIENDS"NBC's upcoming special is ostensibly a tribute to sitcom director James Burrows, but let's be honest: It's a tribute to '80s-'00s TV nostalgia, especially for "Friends" fans. It's not really a "Friends" reunion without Matthew Perry, but he'll still be part of the show via a separate taped segment. The other five -- Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox Arquette, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer -- gathered for the special, which was recently taped, and NBC just shared the first promo.

In the video, we see shots of interviews with the casts of several classic sitcoms, including "Cheers," "Taxi," "Frasier," "Mike & Molly," "Will & Grace," "The Big Bang Theory," and, yeah, "Friends."

The promo ends with a glimpse of the "Friends" panel, with Jennifer Aniston tripping over Matt LeBlanc to take her seat, and moderator Andy Cohen asking the five-some, "Did you all sign contracts saying that you wouldn't sleep with each other?" The camera cuts to Lisa Kudrow turning to David Schwimmer, joking, "David, say something!"

Here's the preview:


It should be pretty cute, even if it's not an "official" reunion, and it will be great to see the other casts talk about their shows, too. The "All-Star Tribute to James Burrows" airs Sunday, February 21 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
