(Deadline.com)
OUR HOUSE (CBS) - Brendan O'Brien's multi-camera comedy - about a devoted mom and dad who are committed to raising their children with the love and support the mom never got as a kid, but discover how difficult that is with her insane parents and siblings back in the picture - has likewise scored a pilot order from the Eye. Nick Stoller and Conor Welch will also executive produce the project, a co-production of Sony Pictures Television and CBS Television Studios. (Deadline.com)
TALENT (FOX, New!) - The network is targeting a straight-to-series order for a small screen take on Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski's Boom! Studios comic book series. Graham Yost is penning the adaptation, which has a script commitment with a significant penalty attached. Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Toby Jaffe, Stephen Christy and Ross Richie will also executive produce for the Sony Pictures Television-based Original Film with Golden and Sniegoski receiving co-executive producer credits. Its logline is as follows: "When Nicole Dane wakes up in a hospital, she learns she is the sole survivor of a tragic accident that claimed the lives of 148 people. As rumors around her "miraculous" survival begin to swirl, Nicole discovers she has inherited the talents of those who perished. Armed with these new abilities, she must use her second chance to bring closure to their unfinished stories and solve the mystery of the accident, all while trying to escape a past that continues to haunt her. Based on the graphic novel series, TALENT is a visceral, yet emotional, mystery about redemption and human connection."
UNICORN, THE (CBS) - Bill Martin and Mike Schiff's comedy - about a widower who is eager to move on from the worst year of his life, only to find he's utterly unprepared to raise his two daughters on his own - is also headed to pilot at the network.

Nevertheless, the network remains open to future takes with FOX chief Charlie Collier saying they have a "legacy and a responsibility to bring it back." (Deadline.com)
WOKE (Hulu) - Blake Anderson has been cast opposite Lamorne Morris in the comedy pilot, which is inspired by the life of cartoonist Keith Knight. Anderson will play Gunther, "a friend of Keef's (Morris) from college who is brimming with manic energy and zany schemes, like an energy drink that people snort. He's not the type to get hung up on details, and what he lacks in formal education, he makes up for in YouTube tutorials. Yet no matter how badly Gunther screws up, things seem to work out for him." (THR.com)
YOU (Netflix) - Adwin Brown is bound for the show's second season as Calvin: "A true West Coaster who's a mix of both meditation and stress, Calvin manages a high-end grocery store, and although he feels his life is more together than most, working at an unconventional store for some unconventional bosses tests him."
