New TV Pilots for Will Arnett, Katee Sackhoff, and Nicollette Sheridan; Plus, Becki Newton to Star in Love Bites on NBC

TV Pilot Roundup: Will Arnett, Becki Newton, and More

The networks are recruiting for an onslaught of new TV pilots, and they're giving a second chance to several well-deserving familiar faces.

  • Arrested Development fans rejoice! If you can't wait for the long-anticipated movie version of the axed-too-soon show, a few of its team members may be coming to the small-screen sooner than you think. Will Arnett is joining Arrested writers Mitch Hurwitz and Jim Vallely to create a new show for Fox. The premise follows a rich Beverly Hills guy (Arnett) who marries a woman who can't stand how annoying he is. Shouldn't be too much of a stretch for Gob Bluth.
  • Ugly Betty may be saying goodbye this season, but Amanda is already getting work outside of Mode. Becki Newton is signing on for the NBC dramedy pilot Love Bites, a collection of stories about modern love, sex, and dating. Newton is set to play, Annie, a sunny, optimistic social worker — and virgin. Bonus: the show is from Sex and the City alumna Cindy Chupack.
  • If Battlestar Galactica graduate Katee Sackhoff's current stint on 24 isn't enough to whet your appetite, the actress is taking up residence at ABC for a crime drama. The currently untitled project centers on a detective (Sackhoff) who helps an ex-cop clear his name by uncovering the series of events and conspiracy that ruined his career.
  • Lightning is striking twice for Nicollette Sheridan. After getting the boot from Desperate Housewives, the actress is moving to CBS for a comedy pilot from the guys behind Borat and Bruno. The semi-scripted series focuses on a father who moves from the UK to LA to reunite with his daughter, a famous teen celeb; Sheridan will costar as her crazy stage mom. Fun!

Which pilot are you most excited about?
