TV Land adds another '90s superstar to its line-up.

Seinfeld star and controversial comic Michael Richards will co-star alongside Cheers star Kirstie Alley in TV Land's Giant Baby. It's guaranteed to be the most depressing show of the year.

TNT is developing a buddy cop drama from Jamie Foxx, about two friends who go from being football teammates to partners in a special police unit. Because if there's one thing TNT needs, it's another crime show.

Bravo has has picked up two scripted pilots, Rita and The Joneses. Unless they both include talking heads and wine throwing, they won't be true Bravo shows.

AMC bought a show from Alex Winter -- a.k.a Bill S. Preston, Esq. of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure fame -- about a Wisconsin sheriff who forms his own militia. [Insert obligatory Wisconsin cheese joke here.]

Rihanna will executive produce and star in Styled to Rock, a fashion reality series on Style. No offense Rihanna, but we've seen some of your outfits and anyone on this show is better off without your help.

Game of Thrones alum and death magnet Sean Bean will star in a drama pilot for TNT, called Legends. Hopefully there won't be any beheadings involved.

In casting news, Elizabeth Banks will return to Modern Family as Cam and Mitch's crazy partying friend in an upcoming episode and Brooklyn Decker will guest star on New Girl. BJ Novak will join BFF Mindy Kaling with a two-episode role on The Mindy Project.
