More than five years after they shared a screen together on "Friends" series finale, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox jumped onto the same wagon again on "Cougar Town". The first look of them in the half-hour comedy series has been shared, showing Cox's Jules being tended by Kudrow's dermatologist character.
One thing different this time, Cox and Kudrow did not want to play as friends. Executive Producer Bill Lawrence said, "She plays a dermatologist who is a horrible, horrible person, but [Cox] goes to her because she's the best. The [sight] of them playing people who dislike each other intensely was very funny for me to watch."
The episode will be aired on January 6, the first one airing in the new year after the show takes a break for holiday season starting December 9.
Lisa Kudrow is not the only "Friends" who got the offer of appearing on "Cougar". Cox had proposed the idea to Matthew Perry to become her on-screen boyfriend but the actor thought it would be "a little too much after Chandler and Monica". Jennifer Aniston is also open to guest star but there has been no role that can fit her, Cox said.
