TV LAND ADDS MORE STARS TO ITS STUNNING TALENT ROSTER AS TWO NEW PILOTS FINALIZE CASTING

Elliott Gould And Missi Pyle Join Ben Falcone, Jay Mohr, Josh Cooke, Ellen Woglom, Geoff Pierson And Kelen Coleman In Multi- And Single-Camera Pilots For The Network

August 23, 2012 - Los Angeles, CA - Elliott Gould ("Friends") and Missi Pyle ("The Artist") have joined previously reported stars Ben Falcone, Jay Mohr, Josh Cooke, Ellen Woglom, Geoff Pierson and Kelen Coleman in TV Land's two new pilots, it was announced today by Keith Cox, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming for TV Land. Falcone ("Bridesmaids") will play the lead in "I'm Not Dead Yet" (working title) as Sandy Lazarus, a driving instructor who, after learning he has a potentially fatal heart condition, decides to start speaking his mind and grab life by the horns. This personality change is greeted by shock and skepticism from his wife (Pyle), father (Gould) and children. "I'm Not Dead Yet" will shoot in September.

TV Land's second pilot, "Brothers-in-Law" (working title), will star Mohr ("Last Comic Standing"), Cooke ("Better With You"), Woglom ("Outlaw") Pierson ("24") and Coleman ("The Newsroom"). The pilot focuses on the family dynamic between Neil (Cooke) and his wife Cheska (Coleman) as they adjust to Van (Mohr), the eccentric fiancé of Cheska's twin sister Maddie (Woglom). Pierson stars as Tom, the family patriarch, whose instant bond with Van makes Neil jealous and annoyed. On top of that, the sisters constantly encourage Neil and Van to form a friendship, even though the men have absolutely nothing in common. "Brothers-in-Law" will tape its pilot at the end of August.

"We're so thrilled by the caliber of actors we are working with for our upcoming pilots," said Cox. "As production begins, we can't wait for our gifted talent on-and-off camera to work their magic."

"I'm Not Dead Yet" is a single-camera comedy from Ben Silverman's multimedia entertainment studio Electus adapted from the DBS produced Israeli format "Zanzuri." The pilot is written by Jon Sherman ("Frasier") with Electus's Jimmy Fox ("Fashion Star," "Mob Wives") co-executive producing alongside executive producer Ben Silverman ("The Office," "Ugly Betty"). The single-camera format represents an exciting addition to the many multi-camera sitcoms that TV Land has produced.

"Brothers-in-Law" is executive produced by Scott Stuber ("Whitney," "Role Models"). The pilot is written and executive produced by Bill Martin and Mike Schiff ("3rd Rock From The Sun"), who will also serve as showrunners, and produced by Quan Phang ("Whitney").
