Nicollette SheridanIt seems the pilot casting news is coming fast and furious these days, eh? Now we have two former cast members of 'Desperate Housewives' (in fact they played husband and wife on the show) who are getting new TV jobs.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Nicollette Sheridan will costar in the pilot for a new CBS sitcom directed by 'Seinfeld' and 'Borat's' Larry Charles. She'll play the mom of a teen singer who has to battle with her British ex-husband who comes to the States to be with the daughter. Meanwhile, her ex from 'Desperate Housewives,' Neal McDonough, has joined the cast of ABC's 'Scoundrels,' a show we told you about a few weeks ago. He'll play Virginia Madsen's husband, a crook who is sent to jail. Actually, the whole family is filled with crooks but he's the only one sent to jail.

'Scoundrels' is described as a "dramedy." Wow I really hate that word.
