LIFE & TIMES OF TIM (HBO) - The pay channel has reportedly ordered a third season of the animated comedy, despite passing two months ago. Producer MRC Studios took the series to Comedy Central, Adult Swim and TBS before HBO ultimately decided to bring it back for another 10 episodes. Steve Dildarian, Leynete Cariapa, Mike Clements, Jimmy Miller and Tom Werner are the executive producers.


RAISING HOPE (FOX) - Kate Micucci ("'Til Death") is returning to the freshman comedy as Shelly, "the owner of a baby and doggy day care center." The actress was originally cast in the pilot as Michelle, the cousin of Lucas Neff's character. The role was subsequently recast as male, with Skyler Stone ultimately taking over. Executive producer Greg Garcia nevertheless remained high on Micucci and constructed the new character for her to play.
