[via press release from TBS]

Actress-Comedian Daisy Donovan Pursues the American Dream in TBS�s DAISY DOES AMERICA, a Fresh New Comedy Series from Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette�s Coquette Productions

Unscripted Half-Hour Series to Premiere Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

Achieving the American Dream is no small feat, but it sure can be a funny ride, as actress-comedian Daisy Donovan (Daisy Daisy, Millions, The 11 O�Clock Show) discovers when she hits the road in TBS�s original unscripted comedy series DAISY DOES AMERICA, from Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette�s Coquette Productions. This fresh, fast-paced and irreverent look at some of America�s most extreme characters and lifestyles, as seen through the eyes of a British import, is set to air on TBS Tuesdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), beginning Dec. 6.

In DAISY DOES AMERICA, Daisy travels the country in search of the American Dream, soon discovering that phrase means different things to different people. Her travels spotlight the quirks and oddities of the American way of life as she tries to fit in wherever she can, whether as a bounty hunter, rap singer or psychic. Along the way, she pokes fun at herself and the characters she comes across in her unique, tongue-in-cheek style. As she strives to conform to the sometimes-bizarre characters and situations she encounters, the results are unpredictable and hilarious.

�Daisy Donovan is a truly engaging personality and a great find for TBS,� said Steve Koonin, executive vice president and chief operating officer of TBS and TNT. �Her ability to corner unsuspecting subjects with her tongue-in-cheek interviews has made her hugely popular overseas, and we are confident that, with the comic talents of Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette behind this new series, her success can be duplicated in America.�

Daisy first appeared on British television in the series The 11 O�Clock Show, featuring mock interviewer Ali G. She then starred in, wrote and produced her own series, Daisy Daisy, which was followed by the series Does Doug Know? Daisy�s acting credits include the series My Family; the television movies The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax, Second Nature and Poirot: Death on the Nile; and the critically acclaimed feature film Millions.

In addition to Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette, DAISY DOES AMERICA is executive-produced by Daisy Donovan and James Biederman (Kids in the Hall, The Tom Green Show). The series is produced by Thea Mann (Talk Show Diaries, Dirt) for Coquette Productions.

Coquette Productions is the Los Angeles-based production company formed in 2004 by Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette. Coquette is currently under a first-look agreement for scripted programming with Warner Bros. Television. Focusing on a variety of genres, Coquette�s recent projects in development include Dirt, for F/X; The Dirt Squirrel, for MTV; and a project for HBO with Courteney Cox to star and Nick Cassavettes to write and direct. Coquette also has produced pilots of Talk Show Diaries for UPN and Midnightly News for FOX and has a movie in development for Paramount, written by Susan Walters from a story by David Arquette.

TBS is television�s �very funny� network, serving as home to such hot contemporary comedies as Sex and the City, Everybody Loves Raymond, Family Guy, Seinfeld and Friends; original series and specials; blockbuster movies; and hosted movie showcases.

Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., a Time Warner company, is a major producer of news and entertainment product around the world and a leading provider of programming for the television industry.
