DON'T LOOK DEEPER (A.K.A. HOW THEY MADE HER) (Quibi) - Don Cheadle, Emily Mortimer and Helena Howard are set to star in the sci-fi drama series on the short-form video platform, about "a high school senior who can't seem to shake the feeling that something about her just isn't right.

Director Catherine Hardwicke and writers Jeffrey Lieber and Charlie McDonnell are behind the project, with New Form's Kathleen Grace and Laura Schwartz and 30 Ninjas' Doug Liman, Jed Weintrob and Julina Tatlock also set to executive produce.

CHASERS (Comedy Central, New!) - Rob Huebel and Cathy Shim are set to star in a new comedy at the cable channel "set in the world of the after dark, independent news video hunters of Los Angeles. While these "independent filmmakers" are considered just a notch below the paparazzi on the food chain, they have even less shame and nothing will stop them in their quest to hawk shocking footage to news outlets." Shim, Robert Ben Garant and Kevin Healey co-created the half-hour, which has a pilot order at the network. Propagate's Ben Silverman, Howard Owens and Kevin Healey also serve as executive producers. Huebel will play Steve "Crash" Byrd, "the owner and leader of the misfit crew of Chasers"; while Shim plays Sugar Ho, "an Americanized immigrant and exotic dancer who moonlights as a Chaser." (Deadline.com)

(Deadline.com)
SNOWPIERCER (TBS) - Steven Ogg - who recurs as Pike, "a volatile Tailie gang leader, who as Layton's (Daveed Diggs) rival, may be more interested in chaos than a real revolution" - will be promoted to regular for the show's second season. (Deadline.com)
TITANS (DC Universe) - Natalie Gumede will recur as Mercy Graves, "the formidable bodyguard and ruthless right hand to the megalomaniacal Lex Luthor," on the upcoming season. (Deadline.com)
