COMMUNITY (NBC) - Alison Brie ("Mad Men") is the latest addition to the comedy pilot, about a band of misfits at a community college. She'll play Annie, a student. Anthony and Joe Russo are helming the Sony Pictures Television-based half-hour, which was penned by Dan Harmon.


ENTOURAGE (HBO) - George Segal ("Just Shoot Me") has been tapped for a multi-episode arc on the show's upcoming sixth season. He'll play a Bernie Brillstein-esque veteran manager who is a mentor to Kevin Connolly's character. Jami Gertz, Autumn Reeser and Alexis Dziena are also set for arcs on the new season, due this summer.


THE FISH TANK (CBS) - Dash Mihok has joined the cast of the comedy pilot, about a teenager (Drake Bell) living alone in his family's house. He's set as Lee, an offbeat neighbor. Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith co-created the half-hour, which comes from Sony Pictures Television.


THE STATION (FOX) - Rob Huebel and Julio Oscar Mechoso are both joining the cast of the comedy pilot, which revolves around covert CIA operatives in South America. Huebel will play Hank, an assassin, while Mechoso is set as Sherman, one of the aforementioned operatives. Ben Stiller is directing the 20th Century Fox Television-based project from a script by Kevin Napier.


THIS LITTLE PIGGY (ABC) - Kevin Rahm ("Desperate Housewives") and former "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" mainstay Jeff Davis have each booked roles on the comedy pilot, about a man (Davis) and his sister who move in with their eldest brother (Rahm). Rahm will play Henry Graham, who's inherited his parents' large, rambling Portland, Oregon house, while Davis is set as his pretentious brother Eric. Brian Bradley and Steven Cragg are behind the half-hour, which is set up at ABC Studios.


TRUE WEST (AMC, New!) - Brett Morgen ("The Kid Stays in the Picture") is developing a Western-themed reality series for the cable channel. The project, which is still in the early stages of development, is described as "a multigenerational family drama about a group of modern cowboys as they pursue a trade that's quickly vanishing." Morgen is currently scouting prospective subjects and shooting locations.
