About the Show

Cougar Town is an American television sitcom created by Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel which focuses on a recently divorced woman who reenters a dating scene filled with younger men (making her a "cougar", hence the series title) while living with her 18 year old son, and embarks on a journey to self-discovery while surrounded by fellow divorcees.

Courteney Cox stars as Jules Cobb in her role as a recently divorced mom in her forties facing the often humorous challenges, pitfalls and rewards of life's next chapter.

Along for the journey is her son — a college freshman -, ex-husband, and friends who together make up her dysfunctional, but supportive and caring extended family... even if they have a funny way of showing it sometimes.

Jules' circle of friends, a.k.a. "the cul de sac crew," includes next door neighbour Ellie (Christa Miller), her sarcastic, unapologetic confidante; Ellie's average, but loveable husband Andy (Ian Gomez); Grayson (Josh Hopkins), the overly flirty neighbour from across the street who's also her "someday guy;" Laurie (Busy Philipps), her younger, feisty protege; ex-husband Bobby (Brian Van Holt), a classic under-achiever who tests her patience; and Travis (Dan Byrd), her dry and witty son who more often than not is the adult observer amongt the group.

Cougar Town stars Courteney Cox as Jules, Christa Miller as Ellie, Busy Philipps as Laurie, Dan Byrd as Travis, Josh Hopkins as Grayson, Ian Gomez as Andy and Brian Van Holt as Bobby.

Bill Lawrence serves as executive producer/writer/director, Kevin Biegel as executive producer/writer, and Courteney Cox and David Arquette are executive producers.

Cougar Town was co-created by Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel and is produced by ABC Studios.
