"Cougar Town" Moves to TBS

Cougar Town Moves To TBS 

New Season of Courteney Cox Series January 8, 2013

Cougar Town is coming to TBS on 8 January 2013. Cougar Town stars Courteney Cox (Friends, Dirt), Brian Van Holt (John from Cincinnati), Christa Miller (The Drew Carey Show), Ian Gomez (Rita Rocks), Josh Hopkins (Ally McBeal), Busy Philipps (Dawson’s Creek, White Chicks) and Dan Byrd (Easy A). The new season is set to premiere Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), on TBS.

In Cougar Town, a family of friends keeps things funny as they support each other through the challenges and pitfalls of life – with a little dysfunction and a whole lot of wine. Courteney Cox stars as Jules Cobb, a recently remarried mom who is never far from her wine and her group of friends known as the "cul de sac crew." They include her under-achieving ex-husband, Bobby (Brian Van Holt); next-door neighbor and confidante Ellie (Christa Miller); Ellie's loveably average husband, Andy (Ian Gomez); Jules', neighbor-turned-husband Grayson (Josh Hopkins); and Jules' feisty protégé, Laurie (Busy Philipps). Meanwhile, Jules' 21-year-old son, Travis (Dan Byrd), often proves himself more adult than anyone in the group.

In the new season of TBS's Cougar Town, Jules and Grayson are adjusting to married life just as Jules' son, Travis, tries his hand at being a "playah." Meanwhile, Ellie will head back to work, Bobby jumps back into the dating scene and nosey neighbor Tom (Bob Clendenin – Scrubs, TBS's 10 Items or Less) will try his best to become a part of the crew. Along the way, Jules and her group of friends will wrestle with big life issues, like whether it's considered adultery if a married man hooks up with a sex robot or what kind of courage it takes to stick an arm into a muddy hole in order to catch a catfish barehanded.

Cougar Town was co-created by executive producer Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Spin City) and consulting producer Kevin Biegel (Scrubs). This season, Ric Swartzlander (Gary Unmarried) joins the show as executive producer and showrunner. Courteney Cox and David Arquette also serve as executive producers. Cougar Town is produced by ABC Studios.
