FOR THE PEOPLE (ABC) - Britt Robertson has joined the cast of the midseason drama as Sandra, "a sensible, fiercely intelligent and independent new public defender who was driven to the law because of an injustice perpetrated on her family when she was a child." She replaces Britne Oldford from the original pilot. (Deadline.com)
HAPPY! (Syfy) - Medina Senghore has joined the cast of the upcoming drama as Amanda, "a single mother whose 8-year-old daughter, Hailey, is kidnapped." (Deadline.com)

(Deadline.com)
SIX (History) - Jaylen Moore's Armin "Fishbait" Khan has been promoted to series regular while Nikolai Nikolaeff has joined the cast as Tamerlin Shishoni, "a charismatic and ruthless Chechen/Jihadi mastermind." Additionally, Katherine Evans is slated to recur as Marissa, "a young woman who finds herself at odds with the Seal Team." (Deadline.com)
UNTITLED GREY'S ANATOMY SPIN-OFF (ABC) - Jaina Lee Ortiz is the first to be cast in the proposed spin-off, about a group of heroic firefighters in a Seattle firehouse. No details about her character were given. (Deadline.com)
