Back to our regular programming (notice how I squeezed in that nice pun there?) with more pilot news.
Mercy‘s Dr. Chris Sands (look to your right) will be played by Men in Trees/Samantha Who‘s James Tupper.
Also, Pushing Daisies‘ Anna Friel is one of the most sought-out after actresses for this pilot season, and Claire Danes might return to TV after her start on ABC’s My So-Called Life.
Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter are back together, and on Comedy Central for that matter, for a show called Michael and Michael Have Issues (premiering around July). Michael Ian Black guested last year on The CW’s Reaper and hosted Comedy Central’s own Reality Bites Back, while Michael Showalter starred in Reno 911!: Miami. The two have been BFFs for over 20 years, joining ranks for Stella.
Lots of stuff to look forward to this year.
