Darlene Hunt, writer/creator on Showtime’s The Big C, sold a comedy script to NBC based on the book Bad Dog by Martin Kihn.  Bad Dog is about Marty, a functioning alcoholic and TV writer-turned-management consultant whose marriage depends on his ability to control his dog Hola.  Neal Moritz and Vivian Cannon will produce the project from Sony Pictures Television.

FX’s American Horror Story cast Teddy Sears in a recurring role as Pat, Chad’s (Zachary Quinto) partner and co-owner of the haunted home that is the centerpiece of the plot from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

Just a day after HBO approved the boxing drama pilot Da Brick from Spike Lee and John Ridley, the premium network cast John Boyega to play the lead, Donnie; Milauna Jemai to play Lynette, Donnie’s mother; Julito McCullum to play Kevin, Donnie’s best friend; and Kamahl Naiqui Palmer as Malik, the moral center of Donnie’s tight group of friends.
