The inbox has been inundated with a few choice "Friends" titbits today – and nearly all of them confirm the same news, the much-talked about "spin-off" has been greenlit. What this means my friends is that the long-running series is dead. But [oh and how much Matt LeBlanc can one get] Joey will spin-off into his own series called "New York New York", shortly after that last episode airs – surely that makes up for the lack of Monica, Rachel, Ross…oh, it doesn’t? Well anyway I’m hearing Joe Pesci [who's film career's about as healthy as a Cow on crack] has been asked to co-star in the sitcom as Joey’s uncle. Another name being branded about for the series is a newcomer by the name of Jamie Dodd. Keep your eyes glued to the trades.
