After being interviewed by Scarlet Magazine about her bold feminist photography, Adena, who is a lesbian, forms a close friendship with Kat (Aisha Dee), the magazine's social media director." (Deadline.com)
COUNTERPART (Starz) - Jacqueline Bisset, Stefan Kapicic, Jacqueline Antaramian, Liv Lisa Fries, Christiane Paul, Ingo Rademacher and Marco Khan have all scored arcs on the series.

(Deadline.com)
FUTURE MAN (Hulu) - Britt Lower will recur on the upcoming comedy as Jeri, "a co-worker who Josh (Josh Hutcherson) has been crushing on from afar for years. She's smart and beautiful, but it's only when Josh works up the courage to talk to her that he realizes she's also a bit of a weirdo, with an oddball sense of humor that might match perfectly with his own." Other guest stars include Haley Joel Osment and Keith David. (THR.com)
HANNAH ROYCE'S QUESTIONABLE CHOICES (CBS) - Tyler Labine is set as the male lead on the comedy pilot, which stars Alice Eve as a woman who has made some interesting choices throughout her life - namely, having three different kids with three different men - but all have led her to having a very unique, loving, blended family. He'll play Barry, "Hannah's (Eve) first husband and the father of her oldest child, Scarlett. A know-it-all ex-stoner who now teaches home-ec and drivers ed, Barry met Hannah in high school, but his Peter Pan ways broke up their marriage. Undeterred, Barry just moved into his mom's house down the street and is still very much a part of Hannah's extended family, getting together with them every day for meals and companionship." (Deadline.com)
LOST IN SPACE (Netflix) - Raza Jaffrey is slated to recur on the streaming service's upcoming reboot as Victor: "Well groomed, educated and officious, with a sense of entitlement, Victor has been a career builder and politician from a young age. There is arrogance and impatience about him. All this masks the underlying fear that he'll one day be found out - that he isn't quite good enough." (Deadline.com)
LUCIFER (FOX) - Lauren Holly is bound for the series in one of its holdover episodes from season two. (TVLine.com)
NCIS: NEW ORLEANS (CBS) - Executive producer Chris Silber has signed a two-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios. The pact covers his duties on the series as well as any future development. (Deadline.com)

STILL THE KING (CMT) - Ben Savage will recur on the show's second season as Gene, "a no-nonsense Securities Exchange Commission agent who dreams of making the big bust." (Deadline.com)
