Wilson’s Solverson is a clean-cut Minnesota State Patrolman, four years back from Vietnam, where he served in the Navy. A humble and competent man, Lou is a devoted husband and father. Danson will play Hank Larsson, the Sheriff of Rock County, Minnesota. An unflappable WWII vet who embodies a certain cowboy poetry, Hank is Lou’s father-in-law. Smart will play Floyd Gerhardt, the matriarch of the Gerhardt crime family. She’s stood by her husband’s side for 40 years, but now that he’s out of the picture she thinks it’s her turn to run things.

Living On Video (HBO Pilot)
Set in 1983 Los Angeles, Living On Video centers on Bobby, a wide-eyed guy who drops out of college and drives to Hollywood with dreams of directing a sci-fi epic. He lands a job as a PA for a company making music videos. In the vein of HBO’s Entourage, the series revolves around the players of the then-exploding music video industry — directors, record executives and crew members, many of them dabbling in drugs — through the eyes of the newcomer.

Mama Dallas (HBO Pilot)
Living in Dallas, Liberty Bell is a man (Albert De Lorio), but he presents himself to the world as a woman -- and the world buys his story. Caught in the rut of a drag's queen's life among the lowlifes, Liberty is weary of an endless round of sex, drugs, bad men, cops, bikers, drag bars, drugs, sex and worse men. She lifts her eyes up from the gutter, carves out a more conservative (but still female) appearance for herself, and promptly lands a gig as a nanny to three children of a very strait-laced family. Caught between two worlds, one quite seedy and one quite repressed, Liberty Bell has to walk a very high tightrope indeed, and also has to be sure that no one in the audience spies the bulge in her leotard

Minority Report (FOX Pilot)
The year is 2040 and three young siblings, Agatha, and identical twins Dash and Arthur, have the unique ability to see the future, specifically murders before they are committed, and researchers are closely monitoring their every move. Fast forward to the year 2054, the siblings are now in their 30s, and Arthur has been separated from his brother and sister for quite some time. Dash believes his brother is nearby and he is determined to be reunited with his twin. Meanwhile, Dash would like nothing more than to do something to prevent the horrible murders that he knows are about to occur. Circumstances partner him with Detective Lara Vega, and they become a formidable crime fighting team.

Roadies (Showtime Pilot)
Rodies follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour as seen through the eyes of the crew members who help get the show on the road. Wilson will play road-weary, sleep-deprived tour manager Bill, who is five years sober, and the best friend that a band could have on the road. Poots is Kelly Ann, a first-rate electrical tech with a great heart, questionable people skills, and a desire to make her mark on the world. Castle-Hughes plays the band’s outspoken and passionate sound mixer Donna Mancini, who every day leads her road family in their favorite ritual, “The Song of the Day.” Cambor is Milo, an offbeat American anglophile guitar tech, not big on personal hygiene, who revels in his road-worthy, slightly scuzzy charm. Spall will play Reg Whitehead, a wildly successful British financial advisor sent by management to oversee the crew’s budget, though he knows less than zero about the music business.

Shakedown (HBO Pilot)
Shakedown is set in the tabloid world and underbelly of Los Angeles circa the late 1950s. The drama centers on the city's top informant/operator/wire tapper/fixer, Fred O'Tash, who lives and works where the glamor and grime intersect. Otash, who died in October 1992, was a somewhat dubious 1950s private eye who claimed to have listened in on Marilyn Monroe having sex with John F. Kennedy; worked for Judy Garland and others; and taped Rock Hudson telling his wife he was gay. Mike Wallace famously confronted him in a heated interview. His career collapsed in the 1960s when Congress began to scrutinize some of the sleazy magazines for which he worked. He was one of the people on whom Jack Nicholson's Chinatown character was based.

Once on Earth Kara was taken in by a foster family, the Danvers, who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. Now twenty-four, Kara Danvers feels unempowered, a slave to having repressed her innate abilities. She’s still pretty, but with her face hidden behind glasses and her hair pulled back, she doesn’t know it herself. An unexpected disaster forces her to use her incredible powers in public. Energized by her heroic deed, for the first time in her life, Kara begins embracing her extraordinary abilities. She begins helping the people of her city and they soon take notice. She’s even given a new moniker, Supergirl. (Claire Holt testing for the lead role.)

Tough Cookie (ABC Family Pilot)
32 year old successful, self-centered, Lilla Spencer is a publicist who makes a living lying--or at least, covering up her clients' flaws and foibles for their public appearances. However, Lilla has a big secret in her own past, which she refuses to acknowledge: she had a baby girl at age 20 whom she gave up for adoption. When she discovers that her baby is now 12 years old and might want a shot at her real mom instead of another stint in foster care, Lilla meets Eleanor: herself, in 12 year old form. Very scary. But as Lilla (along her two roomies, Heidi and Mickey) spends a three day trial period with Eleanor, something very strange happens: Lilla finds her maternal instinct and Eleanor discovers she may be family material after all.
