BACHELOR, THE (ABC) - The franchise is reportedly mulling future spin-offs on its streaming sibling Hulu. "Hulu is an exciting possibility," Robert Mills, EVP, Unscripted and Alternative Entertainment, Walt Disney Television, said. "You can certainly experiment with all sorts of different long form Bachelor programming. You're not hamstrung by running time or even standards. It's definitely exciting. I think it's early, but it's certainly not something that we're not thinking of." Among the options: a proposed senior citizens version of the series. (Deadline.com)
CHASE, THE (ABC) - Producer ITV America and the Writers Guild of America have resolved their dispute over "issues around health and pension benefits and residuals." The news comes as the series is reportedly "on the brink of being renewed for a second season." (Deadline.com)
DEEDS (HBO Max, New!) - Kristin Davis is attached to star in a proposed single-camera comedy at the streamer about "a desperate realtor (Davis) who embarks on an increasingly dark path when she's forced to team up with a drug-addicted, sociopathic, young couple who soon discover that in the world of high-end, LA real estate, when it comes to immorality and cutthroat behavior, they're outmatched." Michael Davidoff is penning the project with Dave Fleming and Calamity Jane's Ellen Pompeo and Laura Holstein executive producing alongside Davis and Davidoff. (Deadline.com)
GOOD FIGHT, THE (Paramount+) - Cush Jumbo's Lucca Quinn and Delroy Lindo's Adrian Boseman will both return to the series to finish out their characters' storylines. "We couldn't be more grateful that Delroy and Cush will be returning in season 5 to finish off their arcs," Robert King and Michelle King told the publication. "We adore the actors and their characters, and are delighted to give the audience a chance to say a proper goodbye." (TVLine.com)
GREY'S ANATOMY (ABC) - Robert I. Mesa's intern James Chee will return as a recurring cast member beginning with the show's April 15 episode. (Variety.com)

LINCOLN LAWYER, THE (Netflix) - Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine is the latest addition to Michael Connelly's drama series adaptation as Detective Raymond Griggs: "A character created specifically for the series, Griggs is an intense and tenacious LAPD Detective investigating the murder of Jerry Vincent, a defense attorney whose cases Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) has taken over. While Griggs is initially an antagonist to Mickey, the two men eventually develop a wary working relationship as they each try in their own way to get to the bottom of the strange events surrounding the murder." (Deadline.com)
MAGGIE (ABC) - The Rebecca Rittenhouse-led single-camera comedy pilot has cast David Del Rio as Ben, "a gregarious guy, Ben has a heightened energy and is enlivened by new experiences and people"; Chris Elliott as Jack, "Maggie's dad; Jack is a throwback to the loving-but-unavailable dads of John Hughes movies"; Ray Ford as Angel, "Maggie's Psychic since she was in the 7th grade"; and Leonardo Nam as Dave, "Amy's husband; Dave is a cheerfully clueless guy whose goal in life is to enjoy enjoying things." (Deadline.com)
MILLION LITTLE THINGS, A (ABC) - Karen Robinson is the latest to recur on the current season as Florence, "a sweet, maternal, confident widow whose sense of humor is dwarfed only by her sense of self." (Deadline.com)
NEIGHBORHOOD, THE (CBS) - Creator Jim Reynolds has announced his exit from the series after three seasons. "I am very proud of The Neighborhood and have given everything of myself over the last three years to make this the best show possible," he said in a statement. "I am so happy that the show has found such an enthusiastic audience and that it will live on. At this moment, in light of everything going on in the world, I had concluded that I am not the right person to continue to tell these stories. I am excited to see the show thrive and wish everyone involved the very best." (Deadline.com)
