TV Land Adds More Stars to Sitcom Pilots; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 27, 2012)

Elliott Gould and Missi Pyle have joined previously reported stars Ben Falcone, Jay Mohr, Josh Cooke, Ellen Woglom, Geoff Pierson and Kelen Coleman in TV Land's two new sitcom pilots. Falcone will play the lead in the single-camera comedy pilot I'm Not Dead Yet (working title) as Sandy Lazarus, a driving instructor who, after learning he has a potentially fatal heart condition, decides to start speaking his mind and grab life by the horns. This personality change is greeted by shock and skepticism from his wife (Pyle), father (Gould) and children. I'm Not Dead Yet pilot will shoot in September.
TV Land's second pilot, Brothers-in-Law (working title) is a multi-camera sitcom pilot that will star Mohr, Cooke (Better With You), Woglom, Pierson and Coleman. The pilot focuses on the family dynamic between Neil (Cooke) and his wife Cheska (Coleman) as they adjust to Van (Mohr), the eccentric fiancé of Cheska's twin sister Maddie (Woglom). Pierson stars as Tom, the family patriarch, whose instant bond with Van makes Neil jealous and annoyed. On top of that, the sisters constantly encourage Neil and Van to form a friendship, even though the men have absolutely nothing in common. Brothers-in-Law will tape its pilot TONIGHT (August 24) in front of a studio audience at CBS Studio Center.

Both I'm Not Dead Yet and Brothers-in-Law are just pilot orders. We will let you know if TV Land decides to pick any of these to actual series to join their other original sitcoms (Hot in Cleveland, Happily Divorced, The Exes, The Soul Man and Retired at 35).
