CHICAGO PD (NBC) - Nick Wechsler ("Revenge") has scored a multi-episode arc on the series as Kenny Rixton, "a former protégé of Voight's (Jason Beghe) from their gang unit days." (THR.com)
HAPPY! (Syfy) - Christopher Meloni ("Underground") has been tapped to star in the pilot, based on Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson's comic book series. He'll play Nick Sax, a corrupt, intoxicated, ex-cop turned hit-man adrift in a twilight world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit goes wrong, Nick finds a bullet in his side, the cops and the mob on his tail and a monstrous killer in a Santa suit on the loose. But his world is about to be changed forever by Happy, a tiny (imaginary) blue winged horse with a relentlessly positive attitude. (Deadline.com)
UNTITLED MARC LAWRENCE PROJECT (CBS, New!) - Marc Lawrence (Music and Lyrics) has sold a single-camera comedy to the Eye about "an extremely non-confrontational single mom who's promoted to Dean of Students at the high school where she teaches and must contend with overly involved parents, demanding administrators and a challenging student body - which includes her two teenagers." Robert and Michelle King will also executive produce with Liz Glotzer via their CBS Television Studios-based King Size Productions. (Deadline.com)
UNTITLED MORENA BACCARIN PROJECT (NBC, New!) - Morena Baccarin ("Gotham") is set to star in a potential drama for the Peacock about "a former police officer-turned-high-powered attorney who navigates the ever-changing landscape of New York City politics, law enforcement and the justice system, all while juggling a complicated personal life. Morena works for a law firm that defends New York police officers in a wide range of cases." Ken Sanzel will pen the script for ITV Studios America with Baccarin, Sanzel, Yap Films' Elliot Halpern and Flame Ventures' Tony Krantz executive producing. Co-executive producing are Drew Comins, Sarah Jackson and Elizabeth Trojian. (Deadline.com)
UNTITLED SCOTT WEINGER PROJECT (FOX, New!) - Scott Weinger is developing a new single-camera comedy at the network about "a married couple whose lives are turned upside down when the wife's immigrant father comes to live with them. The father-in-law's larger-than-life personality and his inclination to take big risks clashes with his strait-laced son-in-law." The project comes from Warner Bros. Television with 3 Arts Entertainment's Jonathan Berry also serving as an executive producer. (THR.com)
Y: THE LAST MAN (FX) - Michael Green ("American Gods") has been tapped to showrun the cable channel's adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's comic book series.
