CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- The latest development news, culled from various wire reports each morning:

THE BROTHERHOOD OF POLAND, N.H. (CBS) - Actor-comedian Brian Haley has been cast as the third and final brother (the other two being John Carroll Lynch and Randy Quaid) in David E. Kelley's latest.

Bierko will play Terry Hench, a father of three and pro hockey player who's forced to retire. John Fortenberry ("Everybody Loves Raymond") has come on to direct the pilot, which is executive produced by Fox, Mitch Hurwitz and Danelle Black.
