"Friends" made its mark in sitcom history, dominating television for a decade. But since the hit NBC show ended six years ago, most of the "Friends" ensemble has faced an uphill battle reaching the same pinnacle of success.
"'Friends' was a hit immediately," said Lisa Kudrow, who starred as Phoebe Buffay on the show, and recently sat down with "Nightline's" Bill Weir for an interview. "It's almost like we kind of ruined it, in a way by hitting so fast, that that became the new standard."
The women of "Friends," including Kudrow, Courteney Cox, and Jennifer Aniston have cultivated noteworthy careers since the show ended, while their male co-stars, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry, appear to have had a harder time finding work and staying in the spotlight.
There has been speculation that the "Friends" cast will reunite on the big screen, but there is still no official deal. Until then, ABC News looks at what they've been doing since the show wrapped.
