It’s not the first time Reese and Jennifer have worked together as 17 years ago Big Little Lies star was a guest appearance in two episodes of Friends, when the 41-year-old actress portray Rachel’s sister Jill Green.

And for Jennifer the forthcoming show marks the first time she has appeared as a regular star in a series since Friends quit production in 2004, although she has since starred in numerous films including the ‘Horrible Bosses’ and it’s follow up, ‘We Are The Millers’, ‘The Break-Up’, ‘Marley & Me’, and ‘The Bounty Hunter’.

Speaking previously about the series, which also featured Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt Le Blanc and David Schwimmer, she said: ‘We were jokingly saying that if ‘Friends’ was created today you would have a coffee shop full of people that were just staring into iPhones.

‘There would be no actual episodes or conversations.’
