Summary
September 1994. Six friends sat down in their favorite coffee shop and began bantering about sex, relationships, jobs, and just about everything else. A quarter of a century later, new fans are still finding their way into the lives of Rachel, Ross, Joey, Chandler, Monica, and Phoebe, and Friends has become the most influential and beloved show of its era. Austerlitz utilizes exclusive interviews with the creators, directors, producers, writers, and cast members to tell the story of Friends' creation, its remarkable decade-long run, and its astonishing Netflix-fueled afterlife. -- adapted from jacket
