EMPEROR OF MALIBU, THE (CBS) - Ken Jeong has scored a lead role on the multi-camera comedy pilot, about two very different families - one from Shanghai with new money and one from the U.S. East Coast with old money - who learn to co-exist when their children get married. He'll play Gerry, who "is shocked when he learns that his son, Auggie, plans to marry a California woman he has been dating for two years without telling his parents. Gerry brings the whole family to Los Angeles to see if they can persuade Auggie to re-think his engagement." (Deadline.com)

PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS (Showtime) - Jessica Garza and Johnathan Nieves will join Daniel Zovatto in John Logan's spin-off series. Nieves will play Mateo Vega, "Tiago's volatile younger brother. While essentially goodhearted, he lacks the clear strength and ambition of Tiago, so he's vulnerable to both his own capricious emotions and various influences around him." Garza then will portray Josefina, "the youngest of the Vega family. She plays the part of the quiet and overlooked sister, but possesses a powerful spirit waiting to be unleashed." (Deadline.com)
RICHARD LOVELY (FOX) - Wendie Malick is the first to be cast in the single-camera comedy pilot as Richard's mother, Alana: "Alana loves her son very much but perhaps will always love herself a little bit more.

SAVING KENAN (NBC) - Chris Rock has signed on to direct and executive produce the Kenan Thompson-led comedy pilot, about a newly widowed dad determined to be everything for his kids while begrudgingly letting his persistent father-in-law become more involved in their lives. (Deadline.com)
YOU (Netflix) - Robin Lord Taylor is slated to recur on the show's second season as Will: "Will deals with unsavory sorts as part of his job, but is himself a thoughtful, personable, and highly intelligent guy who marches to the beat of his own drummer. That is, until he gets trapped in a bad situation." (Deadline.com)
