Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that the estranged but cordial marrieds will soon start pitching to the networks an ensemble sitcom that “explores the ups and downs of relationships across a group of friends, spanning 10 years.”
The project, tentatively (and aptly) titled 10 Years, is being produced through the couple’s ABC Studios-based Coquette Productions, which likely means ABC would get first dibs on it.
While Cox would only be involved in a behind-the-scenes capacity (she’s on a little show called Cougar Town, ‘memba?), it’s possible Arquette could serve as a producer and play one of the roles. There’s buzz two of the characters on the potential series are loosely inspired by Cox and Arquette, whose amicable split and joint child-rearing arrangement would provide fertile ground for storylines.
An ABC Studios rep declined to comment.
