ABC is giving Rebel Wilson’s pilot SUPER FUN NIGHT a second chance, after it was passed by CBS. The “Bridesmaids” star’s comedy will be reworked as a single-camera show similar to other programs on the network, like “Suburgatory” and “The Middle.”
FX has picked up LEGIT, from comedian Jim Jeffries, for a 13-episode order. The laugher is about a comedian attempting to become legitimate in life. Dan Bakkedahl and DJ Qualls also star.
Dean White, SJ Clarkson, and Ole Madsen have been tapped to helm episodes of BANSHEE on Cinemax. The drama from Alan Ball and Greg Yaitanes is about an ex-con (Antony Starr) who assumes the identity of a sheriff but still attempts to carry on his criminal activities.
LOST GIRL has been renewed for a third season over at Syfy. The Anna Silk-starring thriller is produced in Canada and has done fairly well ratings wise in the states, becoming the #1 cable drama in it’s time slot.
Corinne Brinkerhoff has inked a two-year development deal with CBS Studios. THE GOOD WIFE writer will be upped to supervising producer on that legal drama and serve as co-executive producer on ELEMENTARY, which was recently picked up to series.
Jeff Richman, a writer/producer for MODERN FAMILY, has made an overall three-year deal with 20th Century Fox Television. While the Emmy-winning laugher will be Richman’s priority, as he’s been upped to executive producer, the deal also involves development for the company.
