FIRST WIVES CLUB, THE (Paramount) - Jill Scott and Michelle Buteau have been tapped for the lead roles on the upcoming film-turned-comedy series, about a group of women who band together after their marriages fall apart, and who find strength in their sisterhood- and of course a little revenge. Scott's Hazel is "a gorgeous music superstar who has faded from the limelight and lost the confidence she once had"; and Buteau's Bree is "an overwhelmed mom and doctor who hasn't let loose in years."

LESSER GODS (HBO, New!) - Colleen Scriven's podcast, "set in a future where men and women are no longer able to reproduce," is being developed as a half-hour comedy series at the pay channel.

UNTITLED MCELHENNEY & ROSELL PROJECT (FOX) - Rob Riggle and Kaitlin Olson are set to star opposite Leah Remini in the off-cycle multi-camera comedy pilot, about Jean (Remini), who "considers herself a patriot who loves her country and firmly believes in everyone's right to be left alone. Jean in many ways fits the stereotype of a typical conservative. However, she leads a very progressive lifestyle as she is now married to a woman, Birdie (Olson). Together they're raising Jean's two boys with the help of the boys' father and Jean's ex-husband, Richie (Riggle), who currently lives in the garage." (Deadline.com)
