London (ANI): Former 'Friends' star Courteney Cox is set to return to the land of comedy, as a predatory older woman. The 44-year-old has signed on to play the role of a mother with a 17-year-old son in a new TV show called 'Cougar Town'. 'Cougar' is slang for a woman on the prowl for a toyboy.
Scrubs duo Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel will write the project. "People don't do the reality, but there is real comedy about a woman who is talking about Botox and having sex with lights on," the Sun quoted Lawrence, as saying.
Cox has recently been honoured at a charity gala for her commitment to cancer causes. The actress was hailed by Hollywood A-listers such as superstar couple Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z at a fundraising dinner in Beverly Hills, California on February 10.
