THE GOODWIN GAMES (FOX) - Comedian T.J. Miller has joined the cast of the midseason comedy, about three siblings who must heed to the idiosyncratic terms of their father's will to inherit his fortune. He'll take over for Jake Lacy as youngest Jimmy, a small-time ex-con and dull-witted guitarist who's deep in debt to a loan shark. Miller previously toplined the network's "Little Brother" this past development cycle. Another role - Felisha Terrell's Lucinda - is also expected to be recast. Becki Newton, Melissa Tang and Scott Foley also star in the 20th Century Fox Television-based half-hour, from co-creators Carter Bays, Chris Harris and Craig Thomas. (Deadline.com)


HATFIELDS & MCCOYS, THE (NBC, New!) - The Charlize Theron-produced drama - which reignites the centuries-old family feud in a contemporary urban setting - has found a home at the Peacock with a significant penalty attached. John Glenn is penning the ABC Studios-based hour which he'll executive produce alongside Dawn Parouse Olmstead, Beau Flynn and Theron via her Denver and Delilah Productions banner. (Deadline.com)
