about the show
Cougar Town centers on the Cul de Sac Crew, a tight-knit group of friends who keep things funny while supporting each other through the challenges and pitfalls of life - with a little dysfunction and a whole lot of wine. Courteney Cox stars as Jules Cobb, a recently remarried mom who is never far from her wine and her friends, including her new husband, Grayson (Josh Hopkins); her under-achieving ex-husband, Bobby (Brian Van Holt); her next-door neighbor and confidante, Ellie (Christa Miller); her feisty protégé, Laurie (Busy Philipps); and Ellie's loveably average husband, Andy (Ian Gomez). They are frequently joined by Jules' young adult son, Travis (Dan Byrd), who tends to be far more mature than anyone else in the group.
At the end of season four, Laurie and Travis became a couple and Jules is determined to play it cool. However, the idea of Laurie dating her son makes her incredibly uneasy.
Also this season, Bobby and Andy hit the big time when the Cul de Sac's Penny Can game goes global. Meanwhile, Andy convinces Ellie to bring out her alter ego, "Charming Ellie," much to everyone's delight – especially Jules. And Grayson finally realizes his life-long dream of appearing in a television commercial, but the role leaves a lot to be desired.
