Cougar Town (2009–2010)

Akil shifted her focus from the urban to the suburban when she signed up to be a writer and key consulting producer on the ABC series Cougar Town. The series, starring Courtney Cox as a 40-something divorced woman re-entering the dating game, was a departure for Akil, whose work to date focused almost exclusively on life in the Black community.
