The Friends star will play the charismatic, hippie leader of a healing retreat called Clear-Path Institude. The show will follow her struggles as she tries to enlighten a new round of truth-seeking recruits.

ITV is said to have beaten several other UK broadcasters to take on the series, which will be a UK/US production.

It will be Courteney's first time doing a UK-based TV show - though Friends fans will of course remember the time Monica and Chandler got together for the first time in a London hotel room in The One With Ross' Wedding.

Courteney follows in the footsteps of some of her Friends co-stars by venturing across the pond, with David Schwimmer starring in Channel 4 sitcom Morning Has Broken, Matthew Perry taking to London's West End for his play The End Of Longing and of course Matt LeBlanc's Top Gear presenting gig.
