CRACKING UP (FOX) - Molly Shannon will receive an estimated $100,000 per episode to star in the comedy pilot should the project get a series order.

THE LYON'S DEN (NBC) - Former "West Wing" star Rob Lowe will receive $125,000 per episode to headline the legal drama should it go to series.

MISS MATCH (NBC) - Pending a series order, Alicia Silverstone is expected to earn $125,000 per episode to star in the Peacock's dramedy.

MR. AMBASSADOR (NBC) - British actor Rupert Everett's deal to star in the comedy pilot is reportedly worth $150,000 per episode should it get picked up for a series order.

ONCE AROUND THE PARK (NBC) - The NBC Studios/Touchstone project reportedly gave Heather Locklear a $175,000 per episode deal to star in the comedy with a built in guarantee for 10 episodes.
