BROTHERS-IN-LAW (TV Land) - Kelen Coleman ("The Newsroom") has booked the remaining principal role on the comedy pilot, about "a regular Joe (Josh Cooke) who is repeatedly forced to spend time with the eccentric fiancé (Jay Mohr) of his wife's twin sister (Ellen Woglom), even though the guys share nothing in common." She'll play Cheska, the aforementioned wife of Josh Cooke's character Neil. The multi-camera project comes from Stuber Productions and co-creators Bill Martin and Mike Schiff. (TVLine.com)


HAVE GUN - WILL TRAVEL (CBS, New!) - "The Unit" creator David Mamet is returning to the Eye with a revival of the network's 1957-1963 series about "a top-notch gunfighter who preferred to settle problems without violence but stood his ground when provoked." Mamet will write, direct and executive produce the potential hour for CBS Television Studios with agent-turned-producer Elliott Webb also serving as an executive producer. Richard Boone starred in the original, from creators Sam Rolfe and Herb Meadow. (Deadline.com)


PARK & LEX (ABC, New!) - Maria Maggenti ("Monte Carlo") has booked a new drama at the Alphabet about "a mother and daughter who team up as amateur sleuths" in New York City.

TABOO (ABC, New!) - Sara Goodman ("Gossip Girl") has sold a potential drama to the network about "a stay-at home-mom who goes back to work as an undercover psychological profiler for the FBI, but the job isn't nearly as dangerous as the sexual obsession she falls into with the man she's investigating." Goodman will pen the hour, which is based on idea Anthony E. Zuiker. They'll both then executive produce via the latter's ABC Studios-based Dare to Pass banner alongside JoAnn Alfano and Margaret Riley of Brillstein Entertainment Partners. (Deadline.com)
