GOLDEN BOY (CBS) - Holt McCallany ("Lights Out") is the latest addition to the drama pilot, which tracks one man's (Theo James) meteoric rise from uniform cop at age 26 to police commissioner at 34. He's on board as Joe Diaco ("Italian, a Bobby Cannavale type with a questionable set of blond highlights"), one of the detectives from his days in homicide.

INFECTION (ABC, New!) - Soo Hugh ("The River") has booked a potential drama at the Alphabet which chronicles a deadly pandemic ravaging the nation. ABC Studios is behind the hour, which will pick up five years after a desperate President ordered a border that divides the nation to halt the spread of the virus. Aaron Kaplan is executive producing alongside Hugh. (Deadline.com)


NOTORIOUS (NBC) - Tate Donovan ("Damages") is the latest to board the drama pilot, about Joanna Locasto (yet to be cast), a police detective who returns undercover to the wealthy family she grew up in - as the maid's daughter - to solve the murder of Vivian Lawson, the notorious heiress who was once her closest friend. He'll play Vivian's older, responsible brother Edward, who's married with two kids and serves as CFO of Lawson Pharmaceuticals. Katherine LaNasa, Neil Jackson and Victor Garber also star in the Universal Television-based hour, from writer Liz Heldens. (Deadline.com)


PRODIGY/BULLY (FOX) - Newcomer Thomas Vaethroeder has landed the lead role while Chloe Noelle ("True Blood") has also been cast in the comedy pilot, about a young boy genius who uses his brains and brawn to get whatever he wants. He'll play the boy in question, Audie Murphy ("strong, wiry and unkempt"), with Noelle as his younger sister Molly ("all sugar and spice"). Mike O'Malley and Missi Pyle also star as their parents with Hayley Holmes as eldest daughter Jackie and Cody Sullivan and Ysa Penajero as Audie's classmates. Peter Segal is helming the half-hour for the Warner Bros. Television-based John Wells Productions. (Deadline.com, Variety.com)


TABLE FOR THREE (A.K.A. DADDY'S GIRLS) (NBC) - Scott Bakula ("Men of a Certain Age") has scored the male lead on the comedy pilot, about Penelope "Pen" Morton (Christine Woods), a young doctor who returns home from Doctors Without Borders to find her father is seriously dating Holly Timmons (Nicky Whelan), the "mean girl" from her high school. He's set as her father, Robert, who's described as "safe, responsible, a creature of habit and someone who is made extremely uncomfortable by conflict." Brenda Song and Cedric Yarbrough co-star in the 20th Century Fox Television-based half-hour, from writer Dana Klein and director Pamela Fryman. (Deadline.com)


THE WIDOW DETECTIVE (CBS) - John Corbett ("United States of Tara") has booked the titular role on the drama pilot, about a decorated detective who has lost three partners in the line of duty and serves as the male figure in the lives of his fallen partners' families. He'll play said fellow, Denny Brennan ("sexy and solid"), in the hour, which also stars Conor Leslie, Elyes Gabel and Natalie Martinez. Davis Guggenheim is directing from a script by David Hubbard for CBS Television Studios. (Deadline.com)
