HAPPY! (Syfy) - Lili Mirojnick (Friends with Benefits) has been tapped for a role on the Christopher Meloni-led drama pilot. She'll play Det. Meredith McCarthy, "a tough homicide detective in a man's world. She's a good cop who's had to swallow her pride and give up her ideals to save her job and protect her elderly mother. Will the secrets of her past bring damnation - or redemption?" (Deadline.com)

ME, MYSELF & I (CBS) - Dan Kopelman's single-camera comedy - which examines one man's life over a 50-year span: as a 14-year-old in 1991, a 40-year-old in present day and a 65-year-old in 2042 - has received a pilot order from the Eye. Warner Bros. Television is behind the hour with Kapital Entertainment's Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor also executive producing. (Deadline.com)

(Deadline.com)
RAISED BY WOLVES (ABC) - Diablo Cody's import of the U.K. comedy - about Sheila Gable, a tough single mother to five offbeat kids, trying to survive on a shoestring budget in a (not) beautiful Midwestern town - has received a pilot commitment from the Alphabet.

Isabella Russo has already been cast in the lead role of Katie, "growing up in the suburbs of Philly in 1988." Nahnatchka Khan and director Fred Savage also serve as executive producers for 20th Century Fox Television. (Deadline.com)
WITCHBLADE (NBC, New!) - Caroline Dries and Brian Young ("The Vampire Diaries") are developing a new small screen take on the comic book property, about "homicide detective Sara Pezzini, who's on the hunt for an elusive serial killer and must navigate the grisly streets and police politics of San Francisco's Mission District - until one day, the bracelet she has worn her entire life gives her supernatural insight into a crime she's trying to solve. Her bracelet is the Witchblade, an amulet that has been worn by remarkable women throughout history, and Sara is next in line." Carol Mendelsohn Productions' Carol Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz, Circle of Confusion's Rick Jacobs and Dave Alpert and Top Cow's Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins will also executive produce for Sony Pictures Television. Yancy Butler previously starred in its two-season incarnation at TNT from 2000-2002. (THR.com)
