'Cougar Town' Creators Plan to Crash TCA Press Tour


'Cougar Town' Creators Plan to Crash TCA Press Tour


Since their show is not included in ABC's panel at the upcoming winter press tour, Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel will stage their own panel at the Pasadena hotel.

Though "Cougar Town" will be absent from ABC's midseason primetime line-up and Television Critics Association panel schedule, Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel make sure that the sitcom still stays in the spotlight during the hiatus. The co-creators have announced their plan to stage a panel for their show at the TCA winter press tour.

In a YouTube invite sent to members of the media, Lawrence stated as quoted by The Hollywood Reporter, "TCA... that's when the networks trot out the shows their most excited about, both new and old ones." Biegel asked, "Like ours?" to which Lawrence responded, "No, not ours. We weren't technically invited as a show, but we're going to go ahead and crash TCAs."

Lawrence's panel for "Cougar Town", which is said to be "more of a wine drinking event" with the cast, will take place at the Pasadena hotel which hosts the upcoming conference. It is the latest move from the co-creators to promote the Courteney Cox-starring show without being sponsored by ABC.

Lawrence and Biegel have held "Cougar Town" viewing parties in several cities since December 27. The former recently announced that they have secured a bigger venue in Chicago for a January 7 screening party.

ABC has not announced a premiere date for the third season of "Cougar Town", which was initially expected to debut this winter. The network also cut 7 episodes from the upcoming season, which was originally planned to consist of 22 episodes.
