LOS ANGELES — Courteney Cox is expected to be back on the job next week after taking a break from Cougar Town to deal with a "family matter."

A fellow cast member tells E! that the cast and crew were told last Thursday that the ABC series wouldn't shoot the following day, but they were never given a reason why. Neither Fox nor the network have the divulged what the "family matter" was.

Cougar Town is expected to resume production on Nov. 30 following a previously planned hiatus for the Thanksgiving holiday week, a source said.

On the freshman hit, the 45-year-old Cox stars as Jules, a recently divorced single mother dealing with jumping back into the dating scene in her forties.

The critically acclaimed series also stars Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Christa Miller, Josh Hopkins, Ian Gomez and Brian Van Holt.

Cox and her husband, actor David Arquette, have been married since 1999. They have one daughter, Coco, 5.
