SNOWFALL (FX/FXP; W: Eric Amadio & John Singleton; D: John Singleton) - British newcomer Damson Idris is the latest to be cast in the pilot, a one-hour drama set against the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it. The story follows three characters on a violent collision course: Franklin Saint, young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo Zapata, a Mexican wrestler turned gangster in search of his American dream; and Logan Miller (Billy Magnussen), a prominent family's "black sheep" desperate to escape his father's shadow. He'll play the former character, Franklin Saint. (Deadline.com)


URBAN COWBOY (FOX/20th/Paramount; W/D: Craig Brewer) - The network's small screen take on the 1980 Debra Winger/John Travolta-led feature - which follows star-crossed young lovers Sissy and Bud as they pursue their dreams and passions through the dust of the rodeo, the grime of the oil refineries, the sweat of line-dancing in honky tonks and the glamour of modern Texas - has been ordered to pilot. Said effort will feature new characters, Kyle and Gaby. Robert Evans, Sue Naegle and showrunner Chris Levinson also executive produce. (Deadline.com)


WAY, THE (Hulu/Universal; W: Jessica Goldberg; D: Mike Cahill) - Newcomer Kyle Allen is the latest to land a role on the upcoming drama, which examines a family at the center of a controversial faith-based movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power. He'll play Hawk Cleary, "Eddie (Aaron Paul) and Sarah's (Michelle Monaghan) son, and a lifelong follower of The Way, a small religious sect that gains attention in a rural area after a tornado levels the town." Rockmund Dunbar also stars. (Deadline.com)
