BORDERLINE (ABC, New!) - Chris Encell has set up a single-camera comedy at the Alphabet in which "after goody two-shoes Steve falls for reckless Maria, their whirlwind romance is cut short when she gets deported. Now they must decide whether to bail on the potential love of their lives or take a leap of faith and get married. Can two completely different people who barely know each other live happily ever after? Absolutely not, but they're going to try." Danny Chun is also on board to executive produce for ABC Signature.

BOSSY (ABC) - Tisha Campbell and Hayley Magnus have both booked roles on the Lucy Liu-led comedy pilot, about Devin (Liu), a diva boss with no patience for working parents who adopts a baby and has a change of heart, casting her mother-of-three assistant, Annie (Campbell), as an unlikely mentor and upending the office dynamics. Annie is further detailed as follows: "Happily married and the mother of two children, she's tough at home but hasn't figured out how to bring that fierceness into the office. Just as she decides she's had enough with Devin's demands and prepares to quit, Devin adopts a baby and begs her to stay and share her parenting expertise. In exchange, Devin will mentor Annie professionally. Annie accepts the offer and the dynamic of their relationship dramatically shifts." Magnus then will portray Missy: "Quirky and affable, Missy works at Shelter Design. A bit of an oddball, she often says things that are a little off, but she means no harm - she's just not great at reading the room." (Deadline.com)
