ADVERSARIES (ABC, New!) - Sean Finegan, Katie J. Stone and David Daitch are set to team for a potential drama at the Alphabet about Lara Bryer, "a trailblazing fighter pilot who takes charge of the Navy's most elite flight school in Key West. But training Top Gun pilots in supersonic aerial combat is nothing compared to the challenges she'll face on the ground, from navigating life as a newly single working mom to breaking through the glass ceiling in a field so male-dominated that as of 2019, just 10% of all Naval pilots are women." Sony Pictures Television-based Alfresco Pictures is behind the hour with Freddie Highmore and Claire Londy also serving as an executive producer and co-executive producer, respectively. (Deadline.com)
ALL AMERICAN (The CW) - The network has commissioned three additional episodes of the series, bringing its second season order to 16 installments. (Deadline.com)
BAD BLOOD (NBC, New!) - Mike Daniels and Wolfe Coleman have sold a new drama at the Peacock in which "when a murder investigation leads an upstanding detective deep into the life of a criminal brother he never knew he had, questions of fate and identity underscore a story that unravels on both sides of the law." Universal Television is behind the hour with Coleman, 6107 Productions' Daniels and Pacesetter Productions' Jessica Rhoades executive producing. (Deadline.com)
CDC (CBS, New!) - Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan have booked a new multi-camera comedy at the Eye about "a group of socially awkward scientists and their ambitious new co-worker who struggles to find a balance between her career aspirations and loyalty to her unlikely new friends." CBS Television Studios is behind the half-hour with Picture It Productions' Lance Krall, Peter Siaggas and Peter Stathopoulos; and Jerry Bruckheimer Television's Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Reed also on board to executive produce. (Deadline.com)
MOODY CHRISTMAS, A (FOX) - Josh Segarra and Francois Arnaud have both snagged roles on the holiday event series. Segarra will play Marco, "a commodities broker with exquisite phone skills who is the son of Uncle Eugenio and Aunt Kathy"; while Arnaud is set as Dan, "the youngest Moody kid, the creative one, also a neurotic romantic." (Deadline.com)
THEM (Amazon) - Executive producer Little Marvin has signed an overall deal with the streaming service. The pact gives Amazon Studios exclusive access to his Odd Man Out banner's output. (Deadline.com)
