FX's new show Dirt finally has a woman lead

FX Network's original dramas have had one pattern... with The Shield, Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me, and the short-lived show "Lucky", all the protagnists have been male. Their upcoming show Dirt (January 2007) will have a female lead. While Lisa Kudrow (The Comeback), Matthew Perry (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), and Jennifer Aniston (The Break-Up) have moved on (not counting Matt LeBlanc's Joey), Courteney Cox has chosen Dirt to be her next project on Television.

She stars as Lucy Spiller, the editor-in-chief of two tabloids that are the biggest in the country who gets celebrities pissed off. David Arquette and Courteney Cox are the executive producers of the Pilot and the creator Matthew Carnahan is also director of the pilot and executive producer of the show. Knowing FX's shows, this is likely not to shy away from controversy and want to shock the pants off you.
