SOAPNET TO AIR A FOUR-EPISODE MARATHON OF ABC’S HIT COMEDY,
“COUGAR TOWN,” ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14 FROM 5:00PM – 7:00 PM
SOAPnet announced today that it will air a four-episode marathon of ABC’s hit comedy “Cougar Town” on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14 from 5:00PM to 7:00PM. The critically acclaimed series airs Wednesdays at 9:30PM ET/PT on ABC.
Courteney Cox stars as Jules, a recently divorced single mother exploring the honest truths about dating and aging in our beauty and youth obsessed culture. While most women in their twenties go through life experiencing the challenges and often humorous pitfalls of meeting men, Jules took on the responsibilities of marriage and raising a son. Now in her forties, she embarks on a journey to self-discovery whilst surrounded by fellow divorcees and singletons eager to live or re-live a time gone by.
Along for the journey are her friends and family: Laurie (Busy Philipps), the younger, feisty co-worker who encourages her to get out there and have some fun; Ellie (Christa Miller), the sarcastic, unapologetic confidante content with her life and marriage to her average, but loveable husband, Andy (Ian Gomez); ex-husband Bobby (Brian Van Holt), a classic under-achiever who’ll test her patience as they attempt to raise their teenage son, Travis (Dan Byrd); and newly divorced neighbor Grayson (Josh Hopkins), who proves to be a catalyst of sorts for Jules.
“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 (“Scrubs,” “Spin City”) serves as executive producer/writer/director, Kevin Biegel (“Scrubs”) as writer/executive producer, and Courteney Cox and David Arquette are executive producers. The pilot for “Cougar Town was directed by Bill Lawrence and the series is produced by ABC Studios.

When putting the needs of others before her own results in a disastrous experience in bed with her new boyfriend, friends Ellie and Laurie help Jules to realize it’s ok to be a little selfish and take care of yourself once in awhile. Meanwhile Bobby is left to behave like a responsible dad and deal with son Travis.
6:30PM – Episode #105 – ” I Won’t Back Down” – When Jules inadvertently tells Grayson he’s hot and he doesn’t reciprocate, she’s on a mission to get him to admit she’s sexy.
