He'll play Dr. Campbell, "one of Gotham's most well-respected plastic surgeons and philanthropists." Maddow then will lend her voice to gossip maven Vesper Fairchild, "heard (but not seen) as the taunting commentator reaching the city's denizens via radio broadcast or audio-only media." (Deadline.com)
BEHIND THE ATTRACTION (Disney+, New!) - The streaming service has ordered 10 one-hour episodes of a new documentary series which "takes viewers into the history of how popular Disney attractions and destinations came to be, how they have changed over time, and how fans continue to obsess over them." Seven Bucks Productions and The Nacelle Company are behind the project with Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz, Kevin Hill, Brian Volk-Weiss, Robin Henry and Cisco Henson serving as executive producers. Volk-Weiss will also direct the series. (Variety.com)
CROWN, THE (Netflix) - Creator Peter Morgan has signed a massive four-year, eight-figure overall deal with the streaming service. The pact covers his duties on the series, which reportedly will take the series through its sixth season. (Deadline.com)
LIFE-SIZE TOYS (Quibi, New!) - Travis Pastrana will host a new Nitro Circus series for the streaming service "that will transform favorite millennial toys into vehicles for stunts. At the end of each episode, Pastrana and his team will attempt a stunt using a custom-made Life-Size Toy, ranging from a toy car taking on a professional rallycross course to an air rocket that can launch a grown man into the sky." Nitro Circus Media Productions is behind the project with Trip Taylor and Andy Edwards executive producing. (Deadline.com)
REPEAT (CBS, New!) - David Hayter has sold a domestic take on Kurumi Inui's book-turned-Japanese TV series to the Eye, in which "the opportunity to travel back 10 months to relive their pasts seems like an incredible gift to a group of strangers, giving them the chance to right wrongs, undo mistakes, and set their lives on a better path, but their new choices have unforeseen results as they unravel a larger conspiracy with deadly consequences." The project is set up at ABC Studios with Hayter, Masi Oka and WindPower Entertainment's Sabrina Wind executive producing. (Deadline.com)
VAULT, THE (NBC, New!) - Jesse Lasky has booked a potential drama at the Peacock in which "when a cataclysmic event seemingly wipes out the planet, the survival of humanity rests upon Annie, a geobiologist who has been setting up a state-of-the-art facility in the Arctic known as the Vault. It houses a dozen experts in their respective fields all with specific skill sets that would be essential in rebuilding civilization." Keshet Studios and Universal Television are behind the hour with Avi Nir, Peter Traugott, Rachel Kaplan and Alon Shtruzman also slated to executive produce. (Deadline.com)
