Cougar Town exec Bill Lawrence has insisted that the comedy will be a "flagship show" on TBS.

The Courteney Cox sitcom, which has aired on ABC since 2009, will move to the cable network for its fourth season.

"The most that we could have hoped for [at ABC] would be the same as last year - to be a replacement and shuffled in at the last minute and not be the network's priority," Lawrence told TV Guide.

"We enjoyed the show so much that I think that everyone would have been fine doing that. But it was just very odd to go from that scenario to everyone being flown out to Manhattan by TBS, put up at the Ritz and brought on stage like their flagship show."

Lawrence - who will be replaced as showrunner by Ric Swartzlander (Samantha Who?) for the new season - also claimed that his departure will not affect the quality of the series.

"All the cast is staying around and most of the writers are staying around," he explained. "And you'll see... my name all over the place."

Cougar Town will debut on TBS in early 2013.
