Proving that not all Hollywood divorces end in talk show appearances and tell-all books, Courteney Cox and David Arquette have stayed in business together despite their very public differences.
After the sale of their production company’s first sitcom to NBC, the dynamic duo have sold yet another project – this time, to ABC.
Titled Skinny Girl, the half-hour sitcom will revolve around the ilfe of a formerly fat waitress who attempts to maintain her sleek physique despite working at a relatively non-nutricious diner. (And yet, it still sounds better than Whitney.) With the two set to executively produce alongside Mad Love writer/co-executive producer, Rob Sheridan, there’s no word on casting or shoot date, but the inevitable Friends-spawned “big fat goalie” jokes are undoubtedly already being made.
Of course, this isn’t the last masterpiece the two are reportedly hawking: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Cox and Arquette also have a game show pilot, Identity Crisis, in the work at CBS.
As for their NBC series? Title Ten Years, the show is supposedly “loosely based” on the couples’ relationship. And with their dynamic still making headlines despite their very friendly/mature/business-oriented relationship, we can probably all agree it will eclipse Cougartown.
