Matt LanterThat was quick — just a couple of days after the CW made the decision to end 90210 after this season, the network has tapped series co-star Matt Lanter as the male lead in its pilot Oxygen.

The project, written by Meredith Averill and directed by Gary Fleder, centers on Emery (Aimee Teegarden), a teen girl who falls in love with Roman (Lanter), an alien boy, one of nine of his kind integrated into a suburban high school. CBS TV Studio is producing. Lanter is with WME and manager Faras Rabadi. Read More »

Written by Horgan and Holly Walsh and executive produced by Aaron Kaplan, Bad Management centers on a slightly self-centered female boss (Horgan) at a high-end luxury goods department store who finds her ways challenged when the boss’ son, Tobias Jr. (Spade), comes to town and makes youth and sex the new company focus. Harris plays Linda, a store employee who finally gives up on her long-time spray tan habit. ABC Studios is producing, with Kat Likkel & John Hoberg also exec producing.

CBS’ Rules, now in its seventh season, is unlikely to return, in part because producer Sony TV will have to make new deals with the original cast whose contracts are up this season. That made the core actors available for new series, with Spade and Patrick Warburton booking pilots. (Fellow Rules regular Adhir Kalyan also landed a pilot gig in second position). If both Spade and Warburton’s pilots don’t go and they remain available, there is a chance that Rules might be brought back but they are considered very slim as everyone seems to be moving on.

Earlier this season, Harris, along with The Office‘s Angela Kinsey, were attached to star to another comedy project, Dirty Read More »
