Ray Donovan‘s Elliott Gould has booked a regular role on CBS hourlong pilot Doubt. From longtime Grey’s Anatomy executive producers Tony Phelan and Joan Rater, Timberman/Beverly and CBS TV Studios, Doubt centers on Sadie, a smart, chic, successful defense lawyer at a boutique firm who shockingly gets involved romantically with one of her clients who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime. APA-repped Gould will play Isaiah, the head of the boutique go-to criminal defense firm in New York. I hear CBS has Gould in first position, an indication that Fox/Uni TV’s freshman Mulaney, which is not expected to go to a second season, has released some or all of the cast.
Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls) has booked a regular role opposite Fortune Feimster in ABC’s multi-camera comedy pilot Family Fortune, from Matt Hubbard, Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. Written by Hubbard and Feimster based Feimster’s family life and stand-up, Family Fortune is set in North Carolina and centers on popular gym teacher Fortune (Feimster) who comes out of the closet to her close-knit group of family and friends. Chabert will play Nichole, Tyler’s (Parker Young) wife and a devoted mom to their two young children. She’s repped by Innovative, Thruline and Felker Toczek.
