  • show Description
  • Cougar Town focuses on newly divorced mom, Jules Cobb (Courteney Cox). After spending her 20's raising her son, Jules tries to find the balance between having her 20's in her 40's, raising her son, dealing with her ex, running a business, and helping a host of other wonderful characters through their own trials. Encouraged into action by her best friend Ellie Torres (Christina Miller) and her garish assistant, Laurie Keller (Busy Phillips), Jules enters back into the dating scene only to struggle with her ideas (and society's) about how to behave when you are 40 and single. The single-camera comedy comes from Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence and co-executive producer Courteney Cox. Cougar Town is produced by ABC Studios.moreless

    Trivia (22)

    • Goofy: When Travis is saying goodbye to Jules to go out with his friend, she is seating with her arm on the back of the couch. When the camera changes, she has her arm on the pillow.

    • Blooper: When Jules is partying with Laurie and her friend, you can clearly see she is wearing a beige bra as it peeks out under her top in the pole dancing snapshots. Then you can see a black bra peeking out while she is eating and playing with her breakfast. Then the beige bra reappears when they are goofing around at the beach with the two cops.

    • On the golf course, Bobby would appear to be ambidextrous. On the tee, he hit his shot left handed but later in the episode he hit a shot right handed.

    • At 04:50 during the conversation between Bobby and Andy, the sounds of crows crowing can be heard in the background. The sound clip used is the same one used during the title card of The Middle, another ABC comedy.

    • When Travis comes in to tell Jules and Bobby that he has lost his virginity, Jules and Bobby are watching Scrubs. Scrubs is another creation of Cougar Town creator, Bill Lawrence. Christa Miller-Lawrence, who plays Ellis Torres, was a regular on Scrubs as well and is married to Bill Lawrence. Courteney Cox has appeared in Scrubs as well for 3 episodes.
