Friends Creator Admits He Tried To KILL Ross And Monica's Dad
You'll know by now that we at Comedy Central were #blessed to have LEGENDARY Friends Exec Producer Kevin S.Bright hang out with us at our very own FriendsFest (a festival all about Friends - duh) last week in South London.
Bright (yep, of 'Bright, Kauffman, Crane - that image from the end of Friends eps still burned in your mind!) told us al his secrets about the world's most beloved sitcom. One that's shocked fans? HE WANTED TO KILL OFF JACK GELLER.
Speaking to Metro, Bright said: "I think at times I was hoping the show could touch on… it was so good at touching on serious subjects and being funny about it".
"For example, I was going through in my life at the time of the role-reversal that you go through with parents – the realisation that you’re the baby and they take care of you and then you rebirth and you start taking care of them, and the realisation your parents aren’t immortal, but nobody wanted to kill off Elliott Gould."
Though, he added: ‘We might have touched on a few more serious things but there’s nothing that we did that we could have done better."
So Jack almost was granted his wish - to be buried at sea. THANK GOD HE WASN'T, or we might've been robbed of that oh-so-tender scene where he pulls the blanket over Monica post break up with Richard, or when he practised magic tricks to show baby Emma, or when Chandler got a *little* too close in that sauna... sigh. What a character. What a SHOW.
