Liz Meriwether, Oly Obst and Josh Lieberman also serve as executive producers on the half-hour, from 3 Arts Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox TV. The project is detailed by FOX as follows: "Loosely based on Erin Foster's life, "Daddy Issues" revolves around Andi (single, 30-something), who refuses to settle down, and her friendship with her playboy dad.

Sisley will play Avrim Dahan, "an embittered Shin Bet operative who is violent, aggressive, a non-believer who is fighting for the protection of his country and nothing else." Dehbi then is set as Al Massih, "described as an enigma, his origins a mystery." And Ortiz will round out the trio as Felix, "smart, humble and unassuming on the outside; though blessed with a strong faith and a loving family, Felix struggles with his lot in life leading a tiny, uninspired congregation in a border town in Texas where he assumes he will live out the rest of his days."

The project's synopsis is as follows: "FBI Special Agent Clementine Otis is in the midst of investigating a domestic terrorism threat when a personal indiscretion - an affair with a prominent general - shatters her life and threatens her career at the FBI. Now labeled "the mistress," Clementine Otis - wife, mother, patriot - begins to rebuild her personal life and professional reputation."
NCIS: LOS ANGELES (CBS) - Tembi Locke will recur on the current season as Leigha Winters, "a powerful executive at an investment bank who assumes control after the death of the firm's head." (Deadline.com)
RANDOM ACTS OF FLYNESS (HBO, New!) - Filmmaker Terence Nance has reportedly scored a six-episode order from the pay channel for a late-night series "described as a subversive look at the zeitgeist."
