HOT IN CLEVELAND (TV Land) - Niecy Nash ("Do Not Disturb") is set to star opposite Cedric the Entertainer on the show's proposed spin-off, which follows Cedric's Reverend Boyce as he moves to St. Louis and has to balance his wild past with the expectations of his congregation and his family. She'll play his wife in the half-hour, which Cedric co-wrote alongside Suzanne Martin for Hazy Mills Productions. (Deadline.com)


IN THE FLOW WITH AFFION CROCKETT (FOX) - The network has formally passed on a second season of the sketch comedy series. The show's six-episode run averaged a modest 2.40 million viewers and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 this past summer, making the news not much of a surprise. Fox Television Studios, Foxx King Entertainment and Tantamount were behind the project. (Deadline.com)


MAJOR CRIMES (NBC, New!) - Josh Goldin and Rachel Abramowitz (FX's "Outlaw Country") has booked a new drama at the Peacock "set in the world of young ADAs in a Los Angeles downtown court building." Sony Pictures Television and Michael London's Groundswell Productions are behind the hour, which Goldin and Abramowitz will co-write and executive produce alongside London. (Deadline.com)


SCENT OF THE MISSING (TNT) - Summer Glau ("The Cape") and Daryl Mitchell ("Brothers") have both landed roles on the Tricia Helfer-led drama pilot, about a search-and-rescue officer braves the harshest conditions with her best friend and partner, a Labrador retriever. She'll play "a new member of the K-9 Search and Rescue team who is beautiful and very wealthy but much tougher than she looks," while he's set as "a wheelchair-bound former military sergeant who serves as the communications technician for the team." Carol Mendelsohn, Melissa R. Byer and Treena Hancock are all behind the CBS Television Studios-based hour, which begins production later this month. (Deadline.com)


UNTITLED MIKE ROYCE PROJECT (FOX, New!) - Mike Royce ("Men of a Certain Age") has snagged a script order from the network for a new multi-camera comedy about "a two-earner couple that tries to uncompromisingly have it all and therefore is always compromising." 20th Century Fox Television is behind the half-hour, which has a penalty attached. Said sale comes on the heels of Royce's cast-contingent pilot order for "Little Brother" at the network. (Deadline.com)


AND IN OTHER NEWS... - Mark Moses will guest on "Fairly Legal" as a powerful, savvy trial attorney looking to expand his legal empire" (EW.com); Michelle Trachtenberg's Georgina Sparks will return to "Gossip Girl" beginning with the show's 100th episode (TVLine.com); Shawn Hatosy will visit "Criminal Minds" as "a backroom boxer who despite his so-so skills keeps fighting to raise money for his dying son" with the previously announced Charles S. Dutton as his trainer (TVLine.com); Bridget Regan is bound for "Person of Interest" as "a charming/funny/sexy/sassy hairstylist from Brooklyn who learns that one should always look a gift horse in the mouth" (TVLine.com); plus Andrew Dice Clay will turn up as himself on "Raising Hope" as the celebrity judge of an amateur inventors convention (TVGuide.com).
