CELEBRITY SELLOUTS/MY LIFE AS A LIFETIME MOVIE (Lifetime, New!) - DiGa Vision and Leftfield Pictures are on track to land a new series at the cable channel in which A-list celebrities host their own yard sales for charity. Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Brent Montgomery and Lance Bass are all behind the effort, which is based on the latter's Famous Yard Sale initiative. DiSanto and Gateley are likewise behind "My Life as a Lifetime Movie" at the network, which "takes a page from the newsmagazine format in offering an irreverent look at real women whose lives could be a blueprint for Lifetime's signature maudlin TV movies." (THR.com)


LAST MAN STANDING (ABC) - Tim Doyle ("Rules of Engagement") has joined the Tim Allen-led comedy as an executive producer while co-star Alexandra Krosney won't return for the show's sophomore run. Doyle will serve as showrunner, taking over for day-to-day operations from creator Jack Burditt, who in turn is overseeing newcomer "Malibu Country." Meanwhile, Krosney's role of eldest daughter/teen mom Kristin is being recast. No other details were given. (THR.com, TVLine.com)


AND IN OTHER NEWS... - Ashley Tisdale has booked a two-episode arc on "Sons of Anarchy" as "a high-priced escort who complicates the club's life" (Deadline.com); Joseph Fiennes is in talks to join the cast of "American Horror Story" as the head of the institution for the criminally insane where Jessica Lange's character works (EW.com); Cee Lo Green will drop by TV Land's "The Soul Man" as a flashy rival preacher who's stealing congregation members from Boyce's (Cedric the Entertainer) church (EW.com); and Amber Stevens and Bria Murphy will each guest on ABC Family's new comedy "Baby Daddy" (THR.com).
