DIRTY SEXY MONEY (ABC) - Lolita Davidovich has scored a recurring role on the freshman drama. She'll play Flavia Carazzi, a potential love interest for Donald Sutherland's character - an elegant, sexy administrator at a New York children's hospital who crosses paths with Nick (Peter Krause) and Tripp (Sutherland). Separately, Davidovich has completed a multi-episode arc on NBC's upcoming online-turned-broadcast series "quarterlife."


KNIGHT RIDER (NBC) - Deanna Russo ("The Young & the Restless") has booked the female lead while David Hasselhoff is in talks to reprise the role of Michael Knight on the two-hour backdoor pilot. She'll play Sarah Kamen, the brilliant estranged daughter of KITT inventor Charles Kamena and one-time girlfriend of Michael Knight's down-on-his-luck son (Justin Bruening). Sarah and Bruening's character reunite in Las Vegas, where she offers to pay off his gambling debt in exchange for help finding her missing father. As for Hasselhoff, no details were given about his potential cameo role.


RANDY JACKSON PRESENTS: AMERICA'S BEST DANCE CREW (A.K.A. WORLD MOVES) (MTV) - MTV has snagged the rights to the Randy Jackson-produced reality competition series, which was originally set up at NBC under the title "World Moves." The series tracks hip-hop dance groups from around the country as they compete for a cash prize and a touring contract, as determined by viewer votes. Jackson will executive produce the Warner Horizon Television-based project alongside Bayonne Entertainment's Rob Lee, Hip Hop International's Howard and Karen Schwartz, Tenth Planet Productions' Joel Gallen and Dream Merchant 21's Harriet Sternberg. A host, judges and the like will be announced in the coming weeks with an eye toward a premiere in the first quarter of next year.


SWEET NOTHING IN MY EAR (CBS, New!) - Jeff Daniels and Marlee Matlin are set to topline a new Hallmark Hall of Fame original for the network, about a married couple who struggles with how to handle their 6-year-old son who lost his hearing at the age of four. Daniels' character, who has his full hearing, begins exploring the idea of cochlear implants, an option Matlin's vehemently opposes. Joseph Sargent, who won an Emmy for his work with Matlin on the 1985 telefilm "Love Is Never Silent," is directing the project with Marian Rees serving as a co-executive producer and Anne Hopkins producing.
