ron livingston; victor garberWahoo! Ron Livingston, of Office Space and Sex and the City fame, is going to be on the fall television schedule. Ahead of next week's upfronts, FOX has announced that it picked up Primary for the fall. The drama stars Livingston and Rosemarie DeWitt as hostage negotiators with the hots for each other.

FOX is also picking up American Crime, starring Alias veteran Victor Garber as part of an ensemble cast. The show is about high-profile defense attorneys. Good. Someone needs to counter all the adoration for prosecuting attorneys happening over at NBC on four different Law & Order franchises.
