Nicolette Sheridan and Neal McDonough have both signed on for new series pilots, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sheridan, who suffered an untimely demise on "Housewives," will go full-on comedic for CBS as a Hollywood stage mom to a teen starlet. When the daughter's British deadbeat father moves to LA to reconnect with his offspring, no doubt hilarity will ensue.

McDonough's series, "Scoundrels" on ABC, casts him as a petty scam artist who's been sent to prison for a long time. His wife, played by Virginia Madsen, is then left to put the family of criminals on the straight and narrow.

The show is based on "Outrageous Fortune," a dramedy from New Zealand.
