Actress-Comedian Daisy Donovan Saddles Up to Become a Country-Western Star in New Episode of TBS�s DAISY DOES AMERICA

Second Episode of Fresh New Comedy Series from Courteney Cox and David Arquette�s Coquette Productions to Air Tuesday, Dec. 13, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

Actress-comedian Daisy Donovan (Daisy Daisy, Millions, The 11 O�Clock Show) is in for some down-home fun as she tries to become a country-western star in the second episode of TBS�s original unscripted comedy series DAISY DOES AMERICA, from Courteney Cox 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, airs on TBS Tuesdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

Daisy dreams of becoming a singing sensation in the likes of Britney Spears. But after a painfully bad debut performance in a shopping mall, she decides pop music is not for her. Daisy trades her proper British accent for a cowboy twang and heads to the home of country music, Nashville, Tenn., to become a country-western star. She discovers that, to sing country, she needs some country life experience, so she works on a farm, learns to square dance and finally goes to a honky-tonk to get her heart broken. Her transformation complete, she enters a competition to become the next star of country music.

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. 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 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 and David Arquette, DAISY DOES AMERICA is executive-produced by Daisy Donovan, Jim Biederman (Kids in the Hall, The Tom Green Show) and Alek Keshishian (With Honors, Madonna: Truth or Dare). 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 2003 by Courteney Cox and David Arquette. Coquette is currently developing two comedies for ABC: one with Jeremy Stevens as writer and David Arquette as co-creator and star, and the other with Jordan Moffett as writer. Coquette is also in development with Dirt, a project for F/X. Coquette also has produced pilots of Talk Show Diaries for UPN, The Dirt Squirrel for MTV and Midnightly News for FOX and has a movie in development for Paramount, written by Susan Walters from a story by David Arquette. David Arquette will make his directorial debut with The Tripper, which he co-wrote with Joe Harris.
