Dirt buried

  • 41comments

In FX's Dirt, former Friends star Courtney Cox plays the editor of a Hollywood tabloid magazine who uses nefarious means to dig up juicy gossip on celebrities. Life imitated art when Cox gave up a little dirt on herself at a charity event in Los Angeles yesterday.

Speaking to reporters at an event supporting the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Cox addressed the issue of whether Dirt--which she also produced with her husband David Arquette--would get picked up for a third season.

"It just got canceled," she said, according to TV Guide, quickly putting any speculation of a third season to rest.

Dirt premiered in early 2007, and its second season was shortened from 13 episodes to seven because of the writers' strike, something that may have led to its demise. The show received mixed ratings, but apparently could not draw enough of an audience.

Cox isn't letting Dirt's demise thwart her passion for producing. She is currently working on several projects for her Coquette Productions television production company.
