What a ‘Friends’ reboot would look like in 2015

Art imitates life, and who hasn’t been yelled at by their friends for burying themselves in a smartphone while hanging out? What a good idea for a TV show.

Nerdist’s teaser for a reboot of the classic Friends television show necessitates a change in wardrobe, obviously, but the budget for new clothes might be covered by cheaper rates for the actors. Did you know that actors get lower rates for non-speaking roles?

Nerdist’s reboot might be one of the lowest-budget television shows of all time.
