In a move that’s bound to call for a celebratory glass of wine in some circles, TBS has swooped in to rescue ABC’s Courteney Cox sitcom “Cougar Town.”
The show’s fourth season will premiere on the basic-cable channel early in 2013 and has also acquired rerun rights for the 61 episodes from the first three seasons.
Created by Bill Lawrence (“Scrubs,” “Spin City”), the unfortunately named comedy stars Cox as Jules, a divorced mother of an almost grown son (Dan Boyd). Other stars include Josh Hopkins who plays her fiancé, Christa Miller and Ian Gomez as neighbors, Brian Van Holt as Jules’ ex and Busy Phillips as her “feisty protégé.”
Yes, they drink a lot, but mostly on weekends, insists Lawrence.
