Lawrence, who also produced "Scrubs," approached Cox with the sitcom after he heard through the grapevine that she was looking to do comedy again. "She's a fearless comedian."

Cox has been forced to be fearless in her personal life following her recent split with Arquette and a wave of speculation around what exactly broke them up.

Matt LeBlanc

After his ill-fated "Friends" spin-off "Joey" was cancelled after one season in 2006, LeBlanc, now 43, had few callers.

Four years later, he has finally landed a role on "Episodes," a new Showtime comedy series created by one of the producers of "Friends."

In the new series that spoofs the TV business, LeBlanc will play a version of himself.

"I am so glad I got the part," LeBlanc told The Hollywood Reporter. "Seeing someone else play Matt LeBlanc would have been devastating."

Even so, it hasn't been easy being LeBlanc lately. His marriage to British model Melissa McKnight failed around the time "Joey" did. According to People magazine, the couple was dealing with daughter Marina's suffering seizures shortly after birth until she was two. Then, as the couple's third anniversary approached, LeBlanc suddenly moved out and began seeing his "Joey" co-star Andrea Anders. LeBlanc also made tabloid headlines after he admitted to groping a stripper at a Canadian nightclub.
