BERLIN STATION (Epix) - Scott Winters has scored an arc on the show's sophomore run as Nick Fischer, "the American Chief of Station in Oslo, Norway. A cold-blooded loner with conservative political beliefs, he is willing to go to extreme lengths to get what he wants and is not afraid to use force when necessary." (Deadline.com)
CANDY (Bravo, New!) - Ben Cory Jones is developing a new drama at the cable channel which "centers on the youngest and first African American female mayor as she navigates the treacherous political terrains of one of America's most violent and poorest cities while balancing her marriage and an illicit affair. The city, the school system, a group of disenfranchised high schoolers and Candy are all in varying degrees of crisis, putting her and the city's future in jeopardy. She will either become a player on the big stage, or die trying." Ross Fineman also serve as an executive producer for Universal Cable Productions. (Deadline.com)
LAST SHIP, THE (TNT) - Thomas Calabro will recur on the show's fifth season as Gen. Don Kinkaid, "who is in charge of the new, smaller Army that the U.S. has built up in the years since the end of the plague." (Deadline.com)

IDW Entertainment's Ted Adams and David Ozer will executive produce alongside Hill, Derrickson and Carlton Cuse Productions' Cuse and Lindsey Springer. Josh Friedman and Mark Romanek previously spearheaded a take for FOX in 2011 that didn't move forward with Hill himself penning a script for IDW last year. (Deadline.com)
