  CW'S 'THE FLASH' PILOT GETS
RICK COSNETT & DANIELLE PANA- BAKER
It's a pilot season currently, people, the time when channels and networks order new series, shows and pilots for possible future ones, so today we're checking out some of the new purchases and orders: beginning with CW who already ordered a pilot for THE FLASH show, but now they have new cast members. The show will be an origin story of the famous red clad superhero with Grant Gustin playing Barry Allen aka The Flash, a Central City assistant police forensics investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. 'Deadline' reports that Rick Cosnett and Danielle Panabaker have joined the cast as well: Cosnett (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES) will play detective Eddie Thawne, a recent transfer to the Central City Police Department, whose past is a mystery and who harbors a dark secret. Panabaker (SHARK) will play Caitlin Snow, a highly intelligent bioengineering expert who lost her fiancé during an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs!

  NBC'S NEW SITCOMS
'MONEY PIT' TV REMAKE
NBC has meanwhile, ordered a sitcom based on the 80's movie comedy MONEY PIT which starred Tom Hanks and Shelley Long. The story of the new comedy pilot will centre on a newlywed couple that navigates the challenges of modern romance while their house crumbles around them.
BILL COSBY BACK ON TV
NBC will also see the return of Bill Cosby to TV! Envisioned as a warm comedy about a family in which parents love each other and kids respect their parents, the new sitcom will have Bill Cosby playing the patriarch of a multi generational family presenting his take on marriage and parenting.
ROB LOWE IS 'THE PRO'
The channel will also return Rob Lowe to the small screens! Titled THE PRO the sitcom will have Lowe appearing as former tennis doubles champion “Big Ben” Bertrahm, whose career flame-out and misguided investments have left him working as the pro at a tennis and golf club, where he tries to hustle and charm his way back into America’s 1%.

  CBS SITCOM 'THE MCCARTHYS'
TYLER RITTER,LAURIE METCALFE
Over at CBS they are preparing comedy pilot for THE MCCARTHYS which will revolve around a big, sports-crazed Irish Catholic family in Boston and their gay son (to be played by Tyler Ritter, the son of late John Ritter) whose greatest sin is not his sexuality but his desire to spend less time with his family. Kelen Coleman will play his sister and also his room-mate. Jimmy Dunn will be the dim and a little chubby Sean McCarthy, who lives in an attic room off of his brother Gerard’s third-floor apartment. Laurie Metcalfe will play the clan’s loving mother who has no filter and loves having her gay son keep her company when her husband (Jack McGee) and other kids are off coaching basketball games.
