ALONE TOGETHER (Freeform) - Paul Mather ("Powerless") has been tapped as showrunner for the series' recently ordered second season. (Deadline.com)
SIDEKICKS (FOX, New!) - Tracy McMillan ("Good Girls Revolt") has booked a potential drama at the network about "ambitious young Detroit Police detective Shay Kendricks is forced to team up with a newly-paroled criminal informant - who also just happens to be her dad. While Benny Kendricks quickly becomes a secret weapon solving cases, he also shakes up Shay's emotional life, pushing her to reconcile with the past - and the feelings - she'd rather avoid." Evan Katz and UnbeliEVAble Entertainment's Eva Longoria and Ben Spector will also serve as executive producers for 20th Century Fox Television. A penalty is attached. (Deadline.com)
UNTITLED EMILY FOX PROJECT (FOX, New!) - Emily Fox ("Girlfriends Guide to Divorce") has sold a new drama to the network about "longtime friends Reza, June, Amelia, and Indie who have climbed to the top of the Hollywood ladder together as a lawyer, an actress, a writer-producer, and an entrepreneur. It all looks pretty enviable from the outside, and they all enjoy the many perks of their high-flying lifestyles - but there's no such thing as having it all, at least not all at the same time. Each of them has made significant sacrifices to get where they are. When a face from their past resurfaces in the pilot, they have to confront some ugly buried secrets and protect their lives from being destroyed." 20th Century Fox Television is behind the hour with UnbeliEVAble Entertainment's Eva Longoria and Ben Spector also executive producing. (Deadline.com)
VIKINGS (History) - Michael Hirst, Morgan O'Sullivan and James Flynn have launched Green Pavilion Entertainment, an independent production company, and signed an exclusive first-look deal with MGM Television. Already in the works is "Ronin," a television series inspired by the 1998 spy thriller starring Robert De Niro and Jean Reno. CBS previously took a stab at a small screen take back in 2003 with Rick Ramage penning the script. (THR.com)
