(Deadline.com)

POSE (FX, New!) - Ryan Murphy has booked another project at the cable channel: "Set in 1986, Pose examines the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York City: the emergence of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world."

UNTITLED CITY MAYOR PROJECT (ABC) - Yvette Nicole Brown ("The Odd Couple") has signed onto the Brandon Micheal Hall-led comedy pilot as Dina, "Courtney's chatty, drama-prone, single mom who had him when she was a teenager - but she's also his best friend and biggest cheerleader. They're always oversharing, and he seeks out her advice on everything. Dina, who has a high-volume personality and a big laugh, works at the post office, which allows her to stay on top of the latest neighborhood gossip." Said role is in second position to the CBS comedy. (Deadline.com)
