ASSISTANCE (NBC/Universal; W: Leslye Headland ; D: TBA) - Universal Television has extended the options on several cast members of the single-camera comedy pilot - about a magnetic hyperactive workaholic (Krysten Ritter) who tries to juggle the demands of her long-time boyfriend (Peter Cambor), her smug work-husband (Zach Cregger) and her powerful boss (Alfred Molina) - as well as asked for three more scripts. Vinette Robinson also stars in the half-hour, from Gary Sanchez Productions. (Deadline.com)


UNTITLED ROSEANNE BARR PROJECT (NBC/Universal; W: Roseanne Barr & Linda Wallem; D: TBA) - A proposed multi-camera family comedy starring Roseanne Barr is reportedly near a straight-to-series 10-episode order with a 90-episode back order if a certain ratings mark is hit. Linda Wallem ("Nurse Jackie") is co-writing the half-hour, which stems from a development deal the comedian and her manager Steven Greener signed back in January. Should it move forward, the project would mark the studio's first stab at the 10/90 template. (Deadline.com)
