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."

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)
