Cox will star in "Cougar Town," a single-camera comedy about a newly-single 40-year-old mother. The series will be written by "Scrubs" creator Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel.

"Forty-year-old women on TV are so beautiful and perfect and wrinkle-free," said Lawrence, who first worked with Cox when he was a writer on "Friends." "People don't do the reality of it, and there is a real comedy area about a woman who is talking about Botox, about having sex with the lights on and how her body is changing."

Cox recently starred on and exec produced the FX drama "Dirt," which was produced by ABC Studios.
