Peter Mark Kendall (The Americans) has booked a series regular role on The CW’s Untitled Mars Project pilot, from CBS TV Studios. Written by Doris Egan (Reign), the thriller follows an explorer team that arrives on Mars to join the first human colony on the planet, only to discover that their predecessors have vanished. Led by a woman whose husband is among the missing, the colonists are forced to change their mission from exploration and settlement to investigation and survival, while navigating the hostile planet and their own personal demons. Kendall will play Mason, a member of the explorer team. Kendall recurs on FX’s The Americans and NBC’s Chicago Med and previously recurred on MTV’s Eye Candy and HBO’s Girls. He’s repped by Abrams Artists Agency, AC Management and attorney Ryan LeVine.
Matt Oberg (The Comedians) is set as a series regular in The Enforcers, Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot from Warner Bros TV. Written by Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer and directed by Gail Mancuso, The Enforcers is a female buddy comedy about two wildly different single mothers — M.J. (Niecy Nash) and Nora (Christine Woods) — with dreams of being police officers who find themselves partnered as inspectors in the Code Enforcement Department. Instead of fighting crime, they have been relegated to handling petty code breaking, like noise complaints, tree trimming and water misuse. Oberg will play Sweet Pete; a bit of an emotional roller coaster, he’s the PR guy in the office whose job is to inform the public in a “cheerful” way that things like a drought could be the end of mankind. He’s also the right-hand man to George (Ian Gomez), a job he takes quite seriously. Oberg is coming off a season on FX’s The Comedians. He’s also set as a recurring on The Real O’Neals and Veep. Oberg is repped by UTA, Vincent Nastri at Bleecker Street Entertainment and attorney Mitch Smelkinson.
