Courtney Cox's "Dirt" Returns March 2
Former "Friends" star Courtney Cox returns as ruthless tabloid magazine editor-in-chief Lucy Spiller in the second season of FX's critically-panned series "Dirt" on Sunday March 2.
Only 7 of the 13 episodes ordered have been filmed due to the recently concluded writers' strike. The network has however opted not to film any additional episodes this season regardless of the strike developments.
ABC Studio produces the drama with Cox's own production company Coquette Productions, which the actress owns with her husband David Arquette who is listed as the executive producer of the show.
The 1st season ended with Lucy being attacked with a knife and bleeding to death. In concluding moments of the episode, she makes a phone call to ensure that pictures of her bleeding make it onto the front page of the next issue of her magazine.
Cox's former "Friends" co-star Jennifer Anniston made a special guest appearance earlier in the episode. The stint, which included a lesbian kiss between the two ladies, was part of an effort to create additional buzz about the wannabe-controversial series.
Despite the poor reviews the show averaged 5-6 million viewers and it also did well in a number of international markets. The 2nd season may however end without a proper conclusion, as the writers' strike shut down production after completion of episode 7.
