Can you imagine watching the iconic sitcom Friends without your favourite actress Jennifer Aniston essaying the character of Rachel Green in it?
Well, we cannot, and we are glad that this did not actually happen because their came a brief time in history when Jennifer Aniston almost left the iconic sitcom Friends midway.
As reported by Refinery29, this happened because Jennifer had already committed to another project when she was cast in the legendary character of Rachel Green in Friends.
Not only this, the actress had also filmed six episodes of an unaired CBS sitcom called Muddling Through before Friends and if that show saw the light of day, Jennifer would have left Friends halfway.
However, it was revealed that the makers of the show and the studios were not ready to let go Jennifer go.
Saul Austerlitz covered the conflict in his book, Generation Friends and said, “CBS, after some dithering, ultimately chose to put Muddling Through on its summer schedule, in the relative dead zone of Saturday nights. Hearing the news, [Warren] Littlefield turned to [Preston] Beckman, NBC’s scheduling guru, with a two-word order: ‘Kill it.’"
NBC then made a decision to release TV films adapted from Danielle Steele novels at the same time Muddling Through天天色综合,天天干影视 was airing.
Saul added, "They were practically guaranteed to attract a substantial, and substantially female, audience. ... no show about an ex-con motel manager and her daffy family was likely to provide stiff competition for Steele’s glamorous romances."
The films then crushed Muddling Through and Jennifer continued appearing on Friends 天天色综合,天天干影视which established her as one of the highest-paid actresses of all times.
