Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox have reunited – but don’t expect them to be “Friends.”
The former co-stars will appear back together again on the small screen on Courteney’s new ABC single-camera sitcom “Cougar Town,” with Lisa guest-starring as a mean-spirited dermatologist.
“They didn’t want to play friends,” executive producer Bill Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello. “[Lisa] plays a dermatologist who is a horrible, horrible person, but [Courteney] goes to her because she’s the best.”
And seeing the two face off, he said, should be comedy gold.
“The [sight] of them playing people who dislike each other intensely was very funny for me to watch,” Bill said.
It’s not the first time a former “Friend” has appeared in a Courteney TV project. In 2007, Jennifer Aniston appeared in a multi-episode arc on the second season of Courteney’s FX drama, “Dirt.”
Lisa’s “Cougar Town” episode is expected to air early next year.
