CBS Television Studios is behind the half-hour with the Tannenbaum Company's Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum and Madhouse Entertainment's Robyn Meisinger and Adam Kolbrenner executive producing alongside said duo. ABC previously took a stab at a revival in 1999 featuring Melissa Joan Hart among others. (Deadline.com)

He'll play the aforementioned Dorian Gray, "a reprisal of Oscar Wilde's supernaturally attractive and decadent young hero." Eva Green, Josh Hartnett and Timothy Dalton also star. (THR.com)


PUNCHING OUT (CBS, New!) - John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses) have snagged a put pilot commitment for a new single-camera comedy about "thirtysomething guys who hate their jobs and make a pact to go back to when they were happiest - working at the mall." Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope also serve as executive producers on the half-hour, which is set up at their 20th Century Fox Television-based Chernin Entertainment. (Deadline.com)


UNTITLED ADAM LEVINE/GENE HONG PROJECT (NBC, New!) - "The Voice" coach Adam Levine and writer/producer Gene Hong ("Community") are set to team for a single-camera comedy based on their friendship, which began long before they found success. Hong will pen the half-hour for Universal Television with Levine and manager Jordan Feldstein of 222 Productions also serving as executive producers. (Deadline.com)


UNTITLED JAY BARUCHEL/JESSE CHABOT PROJECT (ABC, New!) - Actor Jay Baruchel has sold a semi-autobiographical comedy to the Alphabet about "a successful actor who eschews the fame and superficiality of Hollywood to move back home to Burlington, VT where he buys a house down the street from his mom and invites his two best friends from childhood to move in with him." Baruchel, who is not attached to star, will co-write the half-hour alongside Jesse Chabot with Tagline Television's Willie Mercer and Marc Hamou likewise serving as executive producers for 20th Century Fox Television. (Deadline.com)
