Emmy-winning Everybody Loves Raymond co-star Doris Roberts is returning to active series duty with a co-starring role in ABC’s multi-camera comedy pilot Counter Culture. Written and executive produced by writer-actress Stephnie Weir and executive produced by Claudia Lonow, Counter Culture revolves around three aging sisters running their family diner together in West Texas who find that sibling dynamics are always getting in the way of getting the job done. Roberts will play Aunt Lee, a meticulously coiffed southern belle with a doomsday attitude who runs the cash register at the diner. She recently did an arc on another ABC comedy, The Middle, toplined by her Raymond co-star Patricia Heaton.

Julian Morris has been cast in Fox’s pilot Guilty, a legal drama from Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, which centers on Billy Remz, a brilliant, morally questionable defense attorney who, after being falsely convicted of fraud and stripped of his legal license, uses his unorthodox methods to solve the cases he’s been banned from handling and to exact revenge on the men who set him up. Morris, repped by Gersh and Brillstein, will play an eager young attorney, dazzled and intimidated by Billy’s self-confidence and breezy ability when it comes to breaking the rules. McG is directing the Warner Bros. TV pilot written by Guggenheim. Read More »
