LOS ANGELES, 21 apr (Reuters) – The cast of the hit comedy television “Friends” offered on Tuesday to six fans the opportunity to be part of their upcoming show, which will raise funds for those most affected by the epidemic of coronavirus.

“The One Where You Meet the Entire Cast of ‘Friends’” is the latest attempt to make the celebrities in the #AllInChallenge released in the united States to raise money to help feed americans who are most at risk due to the pandemic.

Actors Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, announced the contest on its social media platforms.

“I know our guest staff in the audience for the recording of our meeting @HBOMAX, as we remember the ‘show’ and we commemorate all the fun that we had,” said Aniston in a post. “We hope that this will bring a little joy.”

The contest includes coffee with the cast on set in Los Angeles on a date to be determined.

In February, it was announced the long-awaited special meeting of “Friends” in the new service ‘streaming’ of HBO, HBO Max. But the filming has been delayed due to the coronavirus, which stopped all production of tv series and movies more than a month ago.

The hit comedy ended up being burned in 2004, but it found new life on the platforms of ‘streaming’. On Tuesday it was announced that HBO Max will be launched on the 27th of may, but the meeting of “Friends” was not among the programs available.

The #AllInChallenge, which offers unique experiences with stars of the show as Justin Bieber, Leonardo DiCaprio and the quarterback of the NFL, Tom Brady, has raised over 14 million dollars to charitable organizations that gather food.
