Two more pilots have been picked up by TBS, bringing the number of new 60-minute comedies on the network's roster to four.

According the Hollywood Reporter, the two new pilot orders were for 'In Security' and 'Franklin and Bash.' The first concerns two sisters who run a private-security business for the high-and-mighty while trying to manage insecure family matters of their own. 'Franklin and Bash' pivots off the friendship of two gutsy, make-their-own-rules lawyers who beat a top-tier law firm on a case and are then invited to join the white-shoe firm.

Heading up the 'In Security' executive producing team are Ric Swartzlander ('Gary Unmarried'; 'Hidden Hills') and Peter Segal (the feature 'Get Smart') together with Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. Segal has been tapped to direct the pilot.Two more pilots have been picked up by TBS, bringing the number of new 60-minute comedies on the network's roster to four.

Sony TV executive producer Jamie Tarses spearheads 'Bash,' with the pilot inked by Kevin Falls ('Journeyman') and Bill Chais ('Head Cases'), who previously collaborated at CBS and Fox.

'In Security' and 'Bash' are both cast-contingent, meaning the shows won't move ahead until the network approves the actors, who have yet to be announced.

The third hourlong comedy pilot on the TBS slate, 'Uncle Nigel,' now proceeds with actor Gary Cole confirmed for the title role of a Philadelphia police detective. The fourth show, 'Glory Daze,' a frat comedy set in Wisconsin during the '80s, has Michael LeSieur ('You, Me and Dupree') and Walt Becker ('Van Wilder,' 'Wild Hogs') penning the pilot, with casting still to come.

'Security' and 'Bash' are a further expansion of TBS' plan to broaden programming with animated shows and hourlong series.
