A tribute to veteran director James Burrows will include stars from the many hit sitcoms he’s worked on, including “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” ”Cheers,” ”Frasier” and “Friends.”

Burrows, who recently directed his 1,000th TV episode, will be honored in a NBC special airing Feb. 21, the network said Wednesday.

How many of the “Friends” cast will take part is uncertain, NBC executives told a TV critics’ meeting.

“I’m hoping that all six of them will be in the same room at the same time, but I’m not sure of that. I’m not sure if we can logistically pull that off,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said.

FEATURED STORIES

A blockbuster comedy for NBC in its 1994 to 2004 run, “Friends” starred Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer.

Greenblatt started to say that all six would be on hand when he was interrupted by fellow NBC Entertainment executive Paul Telegdy, who said it would be “the majority.”

“They will be there, in one form or another,” Telegdy added.

The iconic show ran from 1994 to 2004.

Sean Hayes, who worked with Burrows on “Will & Grace,” is the special’s executive producer.
