FLAKED (Netflix; W: Mark Chappell & Will Arnett; D: TBA) - Kirstie Alley and Heather Graham have both signed onto the upcoming comedy, the serio-comic story of a self-appointed "guru" who falls for the object (Ruth Kearney) of his best friend's (David Sullivan) fascination. Soon the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bullshit that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel. Will Arnett plays Chip, a man doing his honest best to stay one step ahead of his own lies. Alley will play Jackie, "the mother of David Sullivan's character, free-spirited and slightly wayward, with an appetite for male affection has always been a problem for a her son"; while Graham is set as "a surfer girl."

GOOD BEHAVIOR (TNT; W: Blake Crouch & Chad Hodge; D: TBA) - Juan Diego Botto is set to star opposite Michelle Dockery in the drama pilot, which tells the story of a thief/con artist whose life is always one wrong turn, one bad decision from implosion - which is exactly how she likes it. He'll play Javier, "the magnetic contract killer who crosses paths with Letty when she overhears his plans to kill a client's wife." The project, based on the Letty Dobesh books, begins filming at the end of the month. (Deadline.com)


HART TO HART (NBC, New!) - Christopher Fife ("Revenge") is spearheading a reboot of the 1979-1984 drama, in which "by the book attorney Jonathan Hart and free-spirited investigator Dan Hartman must balance the two sides of their life: action-packed crime-solving in the midst of newly found domesticity." Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers toplined the original series. Sony Pictures Television-based Carol Mendelsohn Productions is behind the hour, which has a penalty attached, with Carol Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz also serving as executive producers. (Deadline.com)


AND IN OTHER NEWS... - Judd Hirsch will drop by "The Goldbergs" as Murray's (Jeff Garlin) cantankerous father, a role originated by Paul Sorvino (THR.com); and Dave Coulier will reunite with his former "Full House" co-star John Stamos on "The Grinder" as "one of Sara (Paget Brewster)'s co-worker's patients" (THR.com).
