Ann Cusack (Private Practice) is set to co-star opposite Christina Ricci, Daniel Stern and Miranda Cosgrove in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot Girlfriend In A Coma, from Wolf Films and Universal TV. It centers on Karen (Ricci), a woman who was in a coma for many years and unexpectedly comes out of it to find she has a 17-year-old daughter, Evie (Cosgrove). Cusack, repped by Innovative and Framework, plays Karen’s mother who, along with her husband (Stern), has been raising Evie.
John Billingsley (True Blood) has been cast in CBS drama pilot Intelligence, centered at U.S. Cyber Command and focused on a unit that has been created around one agent (Josh Holloway) with a very special gift — a microchip has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Billingsley, repped by Stone Manners Salners, plays Dr. William Crispin, a top computer neuroscientist formerly at the U.S. Cyber Command unit.
