More pilot and casting news from the major networks

tvCourtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, here's some pilot and casting news from the major networks:

First of all, the FOX drama pilot NSA Innocent is now Company Man, and has cast Jason Behr in the lead as a man hired by the NSA to spy on his own company. Annie Wersching of General Hospital will play his wife.

Heather Locklear has been cast in the title role for the ABC comedy pilot See Jayne Run, about a tough career woman trying to balance work and motherhood.

Over on the CW, Johann Urb, Jud Tylor and Brianna Brown have joined the cast for Dash 4 Cash, which sounds like a game show of some kind but is actually a comedy that takes place behind the scenes of a racing reality show. So it's a fictional series about a fictional reality show, I guess.

Meanwhile, Jason Alexander will have a recurring role in the still-untitled ABC comedy pilot that takes place in a police precinct. Alexander will play the internal affairs superintendent and his role will become a regular one if the series gets picked up and goes beyond the initial order. Sarah Lafleur and Jillian Armenante are also set to star in the new pilot.

Also on ABC: Mitchell Hurwitz's (Arrested Development) new pilot The Thick of It, about the happenings in the office of a congressman (John Michael Higgins) ,has added Wayne Wilderson to the cast as a political blogger.

Isn't there like 10 pilots in the works now with some mother trying to balance work and motherhood?

I'm sorry, but "See Jayne Run" has to be a Firefly spin-off.

John Michael Higgins as a senator? To me, he will forever be the flamboyant, kimono-wearing dog trainer on "Best in Show."

Actually, this pilot has a lot of the same people involved (Christopher Guest et al.) as "Best in Show" and I'm really pulling for it to get picked up.
