Courteney Cox cheers ‘Cougar Town’s’ move to TBS

In the wake of TBS picking up “Cougar Town” after ABC dropped it, Courteney Cox tells Zap2it, “I am looking forward to being on a network where we will get a lot of support.”

No need to read between the lines. She pretty much says what had long been known in the industry — the cast and showrunners had felt ABC was not helping the show enough.

“They will promo us like crazy,” Cox says of TBS, which will begin airing new episodes of “Cougar Town” early next year.

Co-creator Bill Lawrence is stepping down as showrunner, but Cox says, “I feel like he will take care of us in whatever capacity he can, as much as he can. But I feel like we will be taken care of. And he is so amazing.”

After three seasons of playing Jules Cobb, a divorced mom who knows the benefits of an enormous glass of wine, Cox is happy to continue with the character. The rest of the cast is intact.

“I feel fine and I feel excited about moving forward an and I think everything will be OK,” she says. “I think what he [Lawrence] created will stay.”

The other creator, Kevin Biegel, “will be around as well,” she says.

There is a new showrunner, but the deal was sealed only on Monday (May 21), so Cox can’t say who it is yet.

“Nothing will be different about the show,” Cox says. “It is the same writers and it is going to be great to be at a [new] network, and they are excited, and that makes for a better everything.”

TBS’ Michael Wright On Why He Saved Cougar Town

Newly promoted TNT/TBS president/head of programming Michael Wright made a few new friends when he sealed a deal to pick up fan favorite comedy Cougar Town from ABC. After a quick negotiation, TBS ordered 15 episodes of the show, which will premiere its fourth season next winter. The network will also start airing Cougar Town repeats. Wright, who previously saved Southland after NBC canceled it, says there will be no changes to the sitcom. Meanwhile, over at TNT, Wright says he’s eager to change the perception that the network’s dramas only dabble in “self-seriousness or earnestness.” Frank Darabont’s L.A. Noir isn’t ready to be ordered as a series, but Wright expects to air it on Sundays, where the network is specializing in genre shows like Falling Skies.

TNT will also continue to air more procedurals and mystery series on Mondays and Tuesdays — although he hesitates to call new David E. Kelley drama Monday Mornings a “medical procedural.” Wright is also boosting the unscripted fare at Turner, ordering the comedy clip show Deon Cole’s Black Box (from Conan O’Brien’s company) and the Ashton Kutcher-produced hidden camera comedy Who Gets the Last Laugh for TBS, plus the action competition show 72 Hours and the Donnie Wahlberg-produced cop docuseries Boston Blue at TNT.

Wright spoke to TV Guide Magazine about resurrecting Cougar Town and how he’s broadening TNT.

TV Guide Magazine: You made a lot of Cougar Town fans very happy with the pick-up. Walk me through how this happened.
Michael Wright: It happened because of a conversation between the folks at ABC Studios and myself. We’re doing other business with them on a show called Perception that we’re really high on, and in the course of conversation I was asked, “What do you think of Cougar Town?” I told them I loved the show. We had done a show a couple years back called My Boys that I absolutely loved, and I think although they are different shows there’s a similarity to them. They’re character-based and the humor is mined from the way good, close friends interact.

Screen Crush Talks to Kevin Biegel About the Move to TBS

The story is that Bill Lawrence was throwing ideas for bad sitcoms around the writers room at ‘Scrubs.’ As cougars – the idea of older women hooking up with younger men – were a popular meme in pop culture, Lawrence threw out the idea of ‘Cougar Town.’ Lawrence and Kevin Biegel ran with it, and the rest is history.

Co-creator/writer/executive producer Biegel and the entirety of the ‘Cougar Town’ crew had to deal with a year where they didn’t know if they’d have a future, but Thursday it was announced the show would be moving to TBS for at least two more seasons, getting the show to a syndication friendly 100 episodes. We got a chance to talk exclusively with Kevin about the show and the move. Check it out…

Congratulation on being picked up by TBS. Do you now feel a little bit like Conan O’Brien?

Kevin Beigel: Maybe more like the Gaseous Wiener.

We’re curious, when did this plan come into fruition to change networks? Was it talked about when ABC gave you the reduced schedule order for Season 3 or did it come together more recently?

It came together quickly over the past week/week and a half. They had been talking before that, seeing if it was feasible. It wasn’t talked about before, no. I’m not sure it’s been done a lot before- so even more cheers to TBS for doing it.

Will you guys be moving or do you get to stay where you are?

Not all the questions have been answered yet or conversations had, but I think we get to stay where we are. I’m usually wrong, though, so don’t quote me. But I’m pretty sure we won’t have to shoot the show in someone’s backyard.
