‘Friends’ originally planned to pair Monica with Joey! Read on to learn more about popular TV sitcom ThePrint


New Delhi [India]May 2 (ANI): Did you know that Monica Geller, one of the protagonists of the popular sitcom FRIENDS, was scheduled to be married to Joey Tribbiani instead of Chandler Bing?

UberFacts, one of the 150 most followed handles on Twitter, recently released some “fascinating facts” about one of the most popular TV shows that is still attracting the new generation of binge-watching youth around the world.

For those who don’t even know, the show, which ran for 10 seasons and 236 episodes from September 1994 to May 2004, centers on the lives of Ross Geller, Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing and Phoebe Buffay who live in New York City. Over the course of 10 years and seasons, these friends share life lessons, family, love, drama, friendship, and comedy.

Uber Facts has compiled some fun facts about the show:

Before the name “Friends” entered the minds of the show’s creators, “Insomania Cafe”, “Six of One” and “Friends like Us” were considered.

Die-hard fans of the television series who visit the show’s filming locations will be disappointed to discover that the iconic “Friends” opening credits were actually shot at a Warner Brothers studio in California. However, the show portrays the protagonists as being based in New York City.

In the show’s iconic title track, the protagonists can be seen enjoying splashing water on each other near the fountain. However, the Uber Fact Checker claims that there is no such fountain in New York City.

Originally, lead characters Chandler Bing and Phoebe Buffay were cast as supporting actors, the fact-checker claimed.

In a bizarre move, the show’s creators said that Monica Geller, the show’s protagonist, should be married to Joey Tribbiani instead of Chandler Bing.

Uber Fact-Checker went on to claim that the cast was “slightly defensive” to know that Rachel was scheduled to marry Joey instead of Ross later on in the show. The makers then dropped the plan.

Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the sitcom aired on NBC from September 22, 1994 to May 6, 2004. (ANI)
