During any given episode of “Cougar Town,” Courteney Cox’s character, Jules Cobb, is trying without much success to convince her friends to do what she says. Hopefully the same won’t be true in real life because according to TVGuide.com, the actress (who is also a “Cougar” executive producer) has signed on to direct and episode of her series this season. There’s no official word on what the episode will be about or when it will air, but the job is going to seriously cut down on her time playing Penny Can. It also won’t be the first time she’s directed. In 2008, she directed the short, “The Monday Before Thanksgiving,” starring Laura Dern.
