DIVORCE (HBO) - Steven Pasquale has booked a recurring role on the show's sophomore run as Andrew, "a friend of Nick's (Tracy Letts). He's set up with Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) and they fall into a casual relationship." (Deadline.com)
FLINT (Lifetime) - Queen Latifah, Betsy Brandt, Jill Scott and Marin Ireland have all been cast in the docudrama. Brandt, Scott and Ireland will play "real-life activists and Latifah will play a fourth resident, fighting to expose the poisoning of the community during the horrific events of the water crisis." Latifah and Flavor Unit's Shakim Compere will also serve as executive producers on the project, which begins production next week in Toronto. (Deadline.com)
LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (TNT) - The cable channel has shelved the drama pilot, based on the best-selling novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist.

O.G., THE (TBS) - Ryan Gaul has been cast in the Tracy Morgan-led comedy as Josh, "an expensively dressed hipster. He is sophisticated, sensitive yet edgy, and worldly enough to fit in anywhere.

SHOOTER (USA) - Josh Stewart has joined the cast of the upcoming second season as Solotov, "an assassin with a connection to Bob Lee Swagger (Ryan Phillippe) and his team from Afghanistan." (Deadline.com)
TALES FROM THE CRYPT (TNT) - The network has likewise pushed pause on the upcoming reboot following legal issues. "The underlying rights to the classic, vintage property are complicated," TNT said in a statement. "TNT and others have been pursuing a solution for more than a year, with significant progress being made. We look forward to the potential for further active development of this valuable franchise once the clearance process is fully resolved." (Deadline.com)
