Whether you're a fan of Courteney Cox, 47, and David Arquette, 40, or not, you can't deny that their uber-amicable separation is a surprising departure from most Hollywood breakups.

Last fall the couple, who married in June of 1999, announced their official separation amid rumors of substance abuse and occasional infidelity. When the duo went public with their split after 11 years of marriage, they added in their statement that they "still love each other deeply" and intended to continue to work on their relationship.

"Now we're able to actually look at the relationship to see if we're compatible," Cox said earlier this year on Live with Regis and Kelly. "We know we love each other, but how does the rest of it work?"

Despite the couple's obvious concern, they seem to be making a lot of things "work" better than many couples who are still together, both as parents to 7-year-old Coco and as business partners. Cox and Arquette have sold two comedy projects to different networks in as many months, reports The Huffington Post. The powerhouse couple's production company sold a sitcom called Ten Years to NBC last month, and just closed a deal with ABC to bring another half-hour comedy, Skinny Girl, to the air. They are also in negotiations with a third major network, CBS, to sell Identity Crisis, a game show they created.

After appearing most recently onscreen in the fourth installment of the Scream franchise, the couple have been frequently spotted together spending time as a family with Coco. Cox and Coco are also frequently in the audience showing their support on this season's Dancing with the Stars, where Arquette is still holding his own as a contestant.

    It's good that they're trying. I wonder if these two will end up divorcing or working things out.
