100, THE (The CW) - Mike Dopud has booked a recurring role on the new season as Vinson: "Looking more like a professor than a hardened criminal, Vinson stands out from the rest of the Eligius prisoners. But don't let his overly polite demeanor fool you - he's actually a ruthless serial killer, terrifying enough to keep even the worst of the criminals on their toes." (Deadline.com)
BELL HEIGHTS (A.K.A. UNTITLED BOWMAN & MURRIETA PROJECT) (FOX) - Bobby Bowman and Peter Murrieta's single-camera comedy - about "an Eastside LA family with three very different adult siblings who are all held together by the baby, who is a dutiful son" - is being re-developed at FOX with a penalty attached. The project was set up at ABC last year with Dustin Ybarra and Felipe Esparza attached in principal roles. 20th Century Fox Television will now co-produce the half-hour alongside ABC Studios with UnbeliEVAble Entertainment's Eva Longoria and Ben Spector as well as 3 Arts Entertainment's David Miner and Greg Walter likewise executive producing.

GORBURGER SHOW, THE (Comedy Central) - The cable channel has passed on a second season for the T.J. Miller-led talk show.

VIAGRA DIARIES, THE (The CW) - Jessie Kahnweiler ("The Skinny") has been tapped to pen the adaptation of Barbara Rose Booker's novel, about Kit, "a gorgeous intern new in town who gets the break of a lifetime when she poses as the online avatar for her literary hero, Anny, a 40 year-old journalist fighting to stay relevant. Anny must keep her true identity hidden just as her writing finds a new world-wide audience and Kit gets all the credit." Erwin More and Brian Medavoy also serve as executive producers with Alan Nevins and Suzy Unger producing. (Deadline.com)
YELLOWSTONE (Paramount) - Heather Hemmens will recur on the Kevin Costner-led drama as Melody, "a woman who has a cryptic phone conversation with Jenkins who urgently summons her to the ranch." (Deadline.com)
