TBS Picks Up 'In Security,' 'Franklin and Bash'

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.

Gary Cole to Star in Pilot by 'Monk' Creator

Gary ColeUh, yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaah, from this TBS report it looks like Gary Cole is going to be starring in a new hour-long comedy from Andy Breckman, the creator of 'Monk.' It's about a veteran Philadelphia cop who has to train his goofy nephew partner. Maybe it will be a modern 'Andy Griffith Show' (only Barney and Andy were cousins). It's called 'Uncle Nigel,' and Cole will be playing Nigel.

Cole is a really underrated actor. He just seems to bop along over the decades in role after role, but if you look at what he's done it's been pretty fantastic, from his role in the NBC drama 'Midnight Caller' (which I think was a little ahead of its time and would fit in nicely today) to a terrific Robert Reed impression in the 'Brady Bunch' movies to his classic role in 'Office Space' and 'The West Wing' (above).

Yeeeeeeeeaaaaah, if you could get this TBS show on the air as soon as possible, that'd be great. Thanks.
