They may be the happiest unmarried couple in L.A.
"He's my favorite person in the world," Courteney Cox told PEOPLE of her estranged husband David Arquette at the Cougar Town TCA party. "He's my best friend. No matter what happens in our future, he's my very best friend."
Cox and Arquette, who separated in fall 2010 after 11 years of marriage, remain close and together run their production company, Coquette Productions, that has some art-imitating-life projects in the works.
Cox tells PEOPLE, "We sold one show, Ten Year, about a couple who separated after 10 years of marriage. It's not really about David and me, but it's something we related to and we thought we should tell a story about people who could actually get along after being separated. It's telling a different version."

Before his seven-week run on Dancing with the Stars, David Arquette faced a rough patch that had him making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
But being on ABC's hit show has helped the actor, 40, change his image and put tough times – which included a trip to rehab, a car accident and a separation from wife Courteney Cox – behind him.
"I learned a lot about myself on this show," the Scream star told PEOPLE backstage after he and partner Kym Johnson were eliminated from the series on Tuesday night. "I learned a lot about self-appreciation and finding joy in my life and doing things that are positive for me. Kym and I had the best time. We had a lot of fun."

On Dancing with the Stars Monday, the six remaining contestants celebrated Halloween with spook-tacular routines. But Tuesday's elimination show must have been a frightening experience for Nancy Grace and partner Tristan McManus.
Len Goodman called their devil-themed tango "a disappointment," and the judges awarded the duo just 21 out of 30 points, placing them at the very bottom of the leader board.
The HLN host has been there before, but voters have brought her back from the brink each time. So, was Grace saved once again from elimination? Or will she put away her dancing shoes ... along with the Halloween decorations?

He danced the rumba on Broadway night – then orchestrated a show-stopping fight.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy melted down Monday on Dancing with the Stars, railing against the judges – specifically Len Goodman – after receiving 20 out of 30 points for his routine with partner Hope Solo.
"Hope, I've never lost faith in you," Len said, after the dance to "Seasons of Love" from the musical Rent. "I always feel like there is so much there, and for some reason it hasn't come out."
Continued Goodman: "This is your worst dance of the season in my opinion."
But Maksim disagreed – and he didn't mince words.

"She says sometimes the judges have on their cranky pants," Arquette, 40, told PEOPLE of his daughter, 7, backstage after Monday night's show. "She says, 'Let's hope they have on their happy pants.' "

David Arquette had a loving cheering section at Monday night's season 2 premiere of Dancing with the Stars – his daughter Coco, 7, and her mom Courteney Cox, who offered her favorite contestant a bit of advice.
"She was like, 'Don't be so hard on yourself. You did a great job. You really move like a dancer. You can win this if you work on it,' " Arquette told PEOPLE after dazzling the judges and the audience with a Viennese waltz with pro partner Kym Johnson.
"Dancing with Kym has been such a joy and honor," Arquette, 40, said of the Australian pro, who took home the mirror-ball trophy last season. "She's an incredible professional. She's an amazing teacher and a beautiful dancer."
