Jenny McCarthy has been tapped to co-star opposite Patricia Heaton in Heaton's untitled comedy pilot for ABC.
Meanwhile, Richard Kind has joined CBS' comedy pilot "The Angriest Man in Suburbia."
The untitled Heaton project, from Touchstone TV, stars Heaton as a recent widow who finds friends and a path to a new life through joining the PTA.
McCarthy, who recently wrapped ABC Family's holiday movie "Mary Christmas," next appears in the summer feature "John Tucker Must Die."
McCarthy, whose book, "Life Laughs," comes out April 25, is repped by WMA, manager Trent Walford and attorney Leigh Brecheen.
"Suburbia," from Sony Pictures TV and Pariah TV, centers on a husband and father (Mitch Rouse) who struggle with the petty annoyances of daily life in suburbia.
Kind most recently starred in Fox's comedy pilot "Genetically Challenged." His series credits include ABC's "Spin City" and HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
Kind is repped by Innovative Artists and Forster-Delaney Management.
