Tisha Campbell-Martin, Mekhi Phifer, Ernest Dickerson Heading To Lifetime Network With Projects

10 November 2010 7:25 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

2 bits of TV casting and a director hire worth mentioning…

First – Tisha Campbell-Martin joins Chris Payne Gilbert and Ally Walker to star in Lifetime’s drama pilot Exit 19, which follows a single mother (Walker) as she juggles demanding personal and professional lives (she’s an NYPD homicide detective).

Tisha Campbell-Martin will play her “smart and vivacious” NYPD partner.

The project was reportedly originally developed at CBS for the 2007-2008 season; then, Geena Davis was going to play the single mother police detective, and Rosie Perez was to be her partner.

Second – Mekhi Phifer joins Catherine Bell and Anthony Michael Hall in another Lifetime project – this one, an action thriller film genre titled Close Quarters, about a suburban wife and mother with a secret dark past (she was a special-ops agent), which she’s forced to unleash after her husband is mysteriously kidnapped.

Lifetime orders three police procedural pilots

23 June 2010 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Lifetime is diving heavily into the crime drama genre, ordering three police procedural pilots from notable showrunners.

The network has picked up shows from Josh Berman ("CSI," "Bones"), Annie Brunner ("Huff") and Jeffrey Bell ("V").

"With a strong foundation in scripted programming firmly established by 'Army Wives' and 'Drop Dead Diva,' Lifetime is aggressively expanding its drama series development plate with powerful programs from creative auspices who have strong pedigrees in producing stand-out programming," Lifetime Networks general manager and president Nancy Dubuc said. "These pilots developed by (executive vp entertainment) JoAnn (Alfano) and her team are the first steps we will take in bringing Lifetime's scripted strategy to the forefront."

"Against the Wall," from Brunner, is about a policewoman who causes a riff with her cop brothers when she joins Internal Affairs.

"Exit 19" is about a single mother raising kids while working as a New York City homicide detective. »
