Showtime is calling all couch potato’s to get ready for the ultimate Friends TV Series Marathon on Friday 29th September on Paramount exclusively on the Showtime Network from 07:00 KSA (08:00 UAE). Showtime is inviting you to enjoy a fabulous 12 uninterrupted hours of your favourite episodes of one of the longest-running and most popular sitcoms in television history.

Join your favourite group of six friends: spoiled "daddy's girl" Rachel Green, learning to make it on her own; compulsively clean chef Monica Geller; wise-cracking, perennially unlucky-in-love, under confident office drone Chandler Bing; oversexed, uneducated actor Joey Tribbiani; paleontologist nerd Ross Geller who goes through three failed marriages; and quirky, positive masseuse and aspiring folk singer-songwriter Phoebe Buffay.

Cancel any plans, stock up on popcorn and switch off the phone to join Showtime for visit to the most famous coffee house in the world Central Perk, New York for a mammoth 12 hour trip down memory lane for some of the funniest Friends moments from the early days through to thirty-something days.

In May 2004, Friends officially ended its phenomenal 10 year run with 55 awards and millions of fans all around the world hoping for that one final reunion or the highly anticipated movie version of the series. Unfortunately nothing has materialised yet, however the friends are never too far away.

Rachel Aniston is currently lighting up the screen with beau Vince Vaughn in the “Break Up” following her highly publicised split from Brad Pitt. Courtney Cox has a line up of movies in the pipeline including co-starring and being directed by hubby David Arquette in their up and coming movie “The Tripper”. Completing the female trio Lisa Kudrow is still Queen of the small screen in the hilarious series “Come Back” in which she has just been nominated for an Emmy.

Matt Le Blanc didn’t stray too far and is still getting the laughs in the spin-off of Friends “Joey” which sees him move to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career. David Schwimmer is returning as Melman in the hugely popular Madagascar sequel alongside Ben Stiller and Matthew Perry continues to make us laugh by taking guest roles in the hit show Scrubs and has some scheduled movies for later next year.

Join Showtime and the cast of Friends on Friday the 29th of September from 07:00 KSA (08:00 UAE) through to 19:00 KSA (20:00 UAE) for what can only be described as sheer indulgence of the best show ever seen on TV – you can never have enough Friends!
