24 (FOX) - Amy Price-Francis ("The Cleaner") has booked a six-episode arc on the upcoming seventh season of the veteran drama. She'll play a ruthless attorney working for Jonas Hodges (Jon Voight). It's not clear when her first episode will air.


30 DAYS (FX) - Broadcasting & Cable has confirmed the cable channel won't be ordering a fourth season of Morgan Spurlock's reality series. No specifics about the cancellation however were given. "30 Days" bowed in June of 2005 with additional seasons in 2006 and earlier this year.


THE GRAYSONS (The CW) - The netlet has rescinded its plans for a small screen take on the Batman sidekick. It's understood that Warner Bros. Pictures Group president Jeff Robinov pulled his blessing on the project so the studio could "rethink its DC Comics strategy." "The studio has opted not to go forward with the development of 'The Graysons' at this time as the concept doesn't fit the current strategy for the Batman franchise," the studio said in a statement. "Smallville" executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson had been tapped to pen the project for Warner Bros. Television with Wonderland Sound and Vision's McG and Peter Johnson also attached to executive produce.


THE LINE (TNT) - Dylan McDermott ("Big Shots") has been tapped for the lead role on the drama pilot, a character-based police drama that revolves around a squad of undercover LAPD officers as they walk the line between doing their job and being seduced by easy money. He'll play Lt. Andre Carter, "a veteran officer who created and is running the secret unit, trying to strike a balance in his personal and professional relationships with his underlings." Logan Marshall-Green, Omari Hardwick and Nicki Aycox also star in the Warner Horizon Television/Jerry Bruckheimer Television-based hour, written by Doug Jung and directed by Danny Cannon.


LOST (ABC) - "24" alum Reiko Aylesworth is in negotiations to appear in at least four episodes of the show's new season. She'll play Amy, "a smart and successful professional woman with a love for the outdoors who is looking for the right man." No other details about said role were released.


SURVIVORMAN (Discovery) - The Toronto Star reports that tonight's third season premiere of the series will be its last. "It takes a lot out of me as I really do what I do for real, with no camera crew, no nights in hotels like others do, and it takes a toll on my body," star Les Stroud told the paper (via Reuters). "You can only do seven days surviving without food a certain number of times a year. I'm pleased with what I have done, I've been copied around the world, but 25 times I've not eaten anything for a week while sleeping on rocks. I need to move on." Filming is currently underway on his final adventure in Papua New Guinea which will serve as the series finale on December 19.
