Courteney Cox to direct TV movie

2012-02-10 21:29

Los Angeles - Courteney Cox is to direct a new TV movie.

The Cougar Town actress will helm murderous internet love story Tall Hot Blonde for network Lifetime, and she admits she is delighted to have the job.

She said: "I love directing. I thought, 'Oh my god, this is perfect for my personality, to be involved in every little detail.' It made me so happy.

"The film is a true story about two people falling in love on the internet, but no one's who they're supposed to be. There's a murder out of jealousy. It's a really interesting documentary. It's a great role for a guy - and it's not your typical battered woman."

Having finished the latest season of Cougar Town - which she has previously directed episodes of - the former Friends beauty will be focusing entirely on her new job, which will film in Los Angeles so she can be in close proximity to her seven-year-old daughter Coco.

She added to USA Today: "This is going to be a full time job for the next, three months.

"Coco's so social. Everything in her life. I think it's important to keep it really consistent."
