COLLECTION, THE (Amazon; W: Oliver Goldstick; D: Dearbhla Walsh) - Richard Coyle, Frances de la Tour, Tom Riley, Jenna Thiam and Mamie Gummer have all joined the cast of the upcoming drama, the story of an illustrious Paris fashion house, emerging from the dark days of the Occupation, now ushering in a new golden age of design and business. Coyle plays Paul Sabine, the couturier with a romantic vision that he hopes will resuscitate a beleaguered, post-war Paris; with De la Tour as his formidable mother, the scheming matriarch Yvette Sabine, a woman who will stop at nothing to use her sons to help achieve her own thwarted ambitions. Riley then is set as Paul's brother Claude Sabine, the true but hidden genius behind the Paul Sabine label; alongside Gummer as Helen Sabine, Paul's American wife, an ex-pat who's called Paris home for over a decade; and Thiam as Nina, the working-class daughter of the Maison's chief seamstress and the unexpected beauty who becomes the iconic face of the label.

INFAMOUS, THE (A&E/A+E; W: Joshua Zetumer; D: Rupert Wyatt) - Vanessa Bell Calloway is the latest to be cast in the pilot, a drama set against real events in turbulent 1990s Los Angeles leading up to the LA Riots, and centers on two complicated men on a collision course: an ambitious reformed gangster poised to break out of South Central and the LAPD detective hell-bent on taking him down. She'll play Ellie, "Shannon's (Bokeem Woodbine) mother, a gifted singer who once performed with James Brown but now drives a city bus." (Deadline.com)


SUNSET PPL (NBC/Universal; W: Aaron Colom & Adriano Valentini; D: TBA) - Julianna Guill and Cass Bugge are the first to be cast in the comedy pilot, about a group of millennial friends who struggle with their own made-up rules for personal and professional success. Guill will play Talia, "a beautiful, courageous and intelligent East Coast student of mathematics who abandons her thesis studies to pursue her dream of becoming an actress"; with Bugge as Mel, "a trendy, flaky and often vulgar young woman who teaches stand-up at a local comedy club." (Deadline.com)


TRAINING DAY (CBS/WBT; W: Will Beall; D: Antoine Fuqua) - The Eye's small screen take on Antoine Fuqua's 2001 feature about a rookie LAPD cop who goes on a day-long training course with a rogue detective from narcotics has been ordered to pilot. Said effort is set "15 years after the film left off and gives the dynamic of the characters from the movie a twist, with the rookie cop being black and the corrupt older cop being white." Fuqua Films' Fuqua, Beall, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are the executive producers with KristieAnne Reed co-executive producing. (Deadline.com)


WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND (CBS, New!) - Dan Kopelman ("Galavant") has scored a pilot order from the Eye for a new comedy about "two fortysomething parents who were wild and reckless teenagers now face their worst nightmare - raising three teenagers of their own." The Warner Bros. Television-based project marks the Eye's first single-camera comedy order of the season. Kapital Entertainment's Aaron Kaplan also serves as an executive producer. (Deadline.com)


AND IN OTHER NEWS... - Naomi Watts and Tom Sizemore are the latest faces bound for Showtime's "Twin Peaks" revival while co-creator David Lynch is expected to reprise his role as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole (Deadline.com); Whoopi Goldberg will guest on "Blue Bloods" as Speaker Regina Thomas (@BlueBloods_CBS); and Keiko Agena and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa will drop by "Grimm" for its 17th installment this season (TVLine.com).
