FRIENDS star Lisa Kudrow is to star in a spin-off series when the hit show comes to an end next year (04).

The actress, who plays kooky Phoebe Buffay, will pair up with new Friends castmate Aisha Tyler in GIRLFRIENDS.

A source says, "It's still very hush-hush but they're teaming up for another series playing their Friends character."

Friends co-star David Schwimmer is expected to make occasional guest appearances.

MATT Le BLANC is already in negotiations for his own spin-off show.
