MOCKINGBIRD LANE (NBC) - Mariana Klaveno ("True Blood") has been cast as Lily Munster in the Peacock's reboot, joining the previously cast Jerry O'Connell as Herman, Mason Cook as Eddie, Charity Wakefield as Marilyn and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa. Said deal however is contingent on ABC Studios releasing the actress from its drama pilot "Devious Maids," which remains under consideration at Lifetime.

Lieberman ("In Plain Sight") is penning the Universal Cable Productions-based hour, which will center on Jake Levy, "a rising star publicist who, after hitting his peak at his NYC firm, makes a drastic move and launches out onto his own." Prospect Park's Josh Barry and Brillstein Entertainment Partners' Lee Kernis will executive produce alongside Bragman and Lieberman. (Deadline.com)
