"She's going to play Courteney's shrink named Bonnie," reveals Lawrence, referring to Cox's character, Jules. "Kind of a get-too-involved-in-her-life-type of therapist. Those guys are so close in real life they kind of do that for each other anyway. Bonnie has the life Jules' wishes she has."
"It took us a while to find the show," acknowledges Lawrence. "And once we did and once it was clicking, I think that not only did Courteney feel comfortable talking to Jen about doing it, but comfortable in how funny she thinks the show is and that Jen would like it and fit into this world really well."
"It starts and ends with Courteney and Jennifer being really great friends and excited to work together again-especially doing comedy together," Lawrence adds. "Every day that those two talk they have more ideas about [the role]. It's definitely something they're both involved in creatively."
Cougar Town will debut its second season on Wednesday, September 22 at 9:30 PM ET on ABC. The series stars Courteney Cox, Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Josh Hopkins, Ian Gomez and Brian Van Holt.
