UPN has picked up three female-skewing comedy pilots, including an untitled project about Latina singing group Soluna.
In drama pilot casting news, Justin Chambers has joined ABC's "The Secret Service," Navi Rawat has been added to the cast of Fox's "Oahu" while also landing a recurring role on the network's hot teen drama series "The O.C.," Louis Mandylor and Salli Richardson have come on board ABC's "Countdown," and Natalie Zea has joined ABC's "Eyes."
As for the UPN trio, "I Do, I Did, Now What?" is based on Jenny Lee's book chronicling the realities of marriage after the honeymoon is over. "Me, Me, Me" is a female buddy comedy about two good-looking New York women shamelessly climbing the social ladder. The untitled project about DreamWorks recording act Soluna stars Jessica Castellanos, Christina Lopez, America Olivio and Aurora Rodriguez as members of a rising quartet of young Latina singers.
ABC's "The Secret Service" centers on a young woman (Sarah Wayne Callies) who struggles to balance her marriage with the demands of her career in the Secret Service. Chambers ("The Musketeer," "The Wedding Planner") will play her partner.
Fox's "Oahu" is an "Upstairs, Downstairs" look at guests and staffers of a luxury Hawaiian hotel. Rawat will play the hotel's concierge. On "The O.C.," she plays Ryan Atwood's (Benjamin McKenzie) ex-girlfriend.
ABC's "Countdown" chronicles in real time the work of a SWAT team. Mandylor and Richardson will play members of the team. Mandylor co-starred in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" and its short-lived CBS spinoff. Richardson starred in "Antwone Fisher."
ABC's "Eyes" centers on the workings of high-powered risk management corporation, with Tim Daly set to play its president. Zea (NBC's "Passions") will play a promiscuous employee at the firm.
