Robert Greenblatt says started talking to Daniels, who developed the American version of The Office, four years ago about rebooting The Office when the HBO Max boss was running NBC Entertainment. "He wants to do it and actually has an idea for it," says Greenblatt. The HBO Max boss, however, is less optimistic about a Friends reboot -- but he'll keep on trying. "I will say is, 'We're talking about it,'" he says. "We've been drilling down on what it could be and trying to see if everybody's really on board and interested. And if so, can we make the right deals for everybody. We're starting it as a special. It's possible there could be something ongoing, but it would be in steps. We're far from that."
