Hannigan will play Maggie, "an English professor at a university in San Francisco. Once an aspiring poet, she is a bright but frustrated woman who is struggling to put excitement back into her flagging marriage. When her old college friend dies, she is galvanized to finally make changes, starting with leaving her husband and tackling life with a renewed sense of adventure." Hilty then is set as Kim, "once a very successful actress who has 'aged out' of Hollywood. Needy and vulnerable, she works hard at staying fit and gorgeous, still hoping for that breakout role, while doing cheesy commercials. Divorced, with an 8-year-old son, Kim is happy to reconnect with old friends." Karen Rosenfelt has also been confirmed as an executive producer. (Deadline.com)
I LOVE DICK (Amazon) - Griffin Dunne ("Manhattan") has booked a lead role on the pilot, about "married couple Chris (Kathryn Hahn), an independent filmmaker, and Sylvere (Dunne), an intellectual and cultural critic who lands in Marfa as an esteemed fellow with an important residency.

After years away from the spotlight, she enlists Rodrigo to conduct her grand return performance." (Deadline.com)
QUANTICO (ABC) - Russell Tovey ("Looking") has joined the cast of the series as Harry Doyle. "The character is described as a mischievous gadabout. Part Thomas Crown, part grown-up Artful Dodger, the mysterious Harry can be anything to anybody - and is just as likely to seduce your husband as he is to pick his pocket when it's over."
