Unfortunately, they're not all elite and they're only medium badass, but they're going to fight for the little guy and protect the law - even if that means breaking it most of the time." Danny Mackey penned the 20th Century Fox Television-based half-hour, which has a penalty attached. Adam Devine; Wonderland Sound and Vision's McG and Mary Viola; and Chris Case also serve as executive producers. (Deadline.com)

(Deadline.com)
NARCOS (Netflix) - Michael Stahl-David and Matt Whelan have both joined the cast of the show's third season as Chris Feistl, "a young American DEA agent who sought out assignment to Colombia as the drug trade shifts to the Cali Cartel's takeover in the wake of Pablo Escobar's death"; and his partner, Daniel Van Ness, respectively.

Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions is behind the half-hour with Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter likewise executive producing. (Variety.com)
SHAMELESS (Showtime) - Noel Fisher will reprise his role as Ian's ex-boyfriend Mickey Milkovich on the current season. (TVLine.com)
UNTITLED CAROL BURNETT PROJECT (ABC, New!) - Carol Burnett is attached to star in a multi-camera comedy at the Alphabet about "a family who gets a chance to buy the house of their dreams - a house they'd never be able to afford under normal circumstances, but is able to under extremely abnormal circumstances. They must live with the current owner, an older actress (Burnett) - until she dies." Michael Saltzman will pen the half-hour, which has a put pilot commitment. Paper Kite's Amy Poehler and Brooke Posch; 3 Arts Entertainment's Dave Becky; and Comedy Dynamics' Michael Pelmont also serve as executive producers for Universal Television. (Deadline.com)
