Image Credit: Lester Cohen/WireImage.comCourteney Cox is cooking up something bigger than a title change to lure viewers to the undiscovered gem that is her ABC comedy Cougar Town: Jennifer Aniston!
After a year’s worth of will-she-or-won’t-she speculation, Aniston is nearing a deal to reunite with her former Friends costar (and real-life BFF) in an early episode of the show’s second season (premiering on Sept. 22), sources confirm to me exclusively.
ABC declined to comment, while Cougar Town executive producer Bill Lawrence would only say, “I would love for it to happen but there’s nothing to talk about yet.”
This would mark only the second time the pair have worked together on a scripted series since Friends went off the air in 2004. Their first reunion was in 2007, when they reteamed for an episode of Cox’s FX dramedy Dirt.
Cox’s other female Friend, Lisa Kudrow, guest-starred as an angry dermatologist during the show’s first season. There’s no word on who Aniston would be playing.
