TV News - 'Tad Quill Comedy,' 'The Missionary,' 'The Newsroom' & 'Ray Donovan'

        Friday, April 12 - Tony and Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth is set to co-star opposite Matthew Broderick on the untitled CBS comedy pilot from Tad Quill. She will play Marnie, Jack's (Broderick) cute but judgmental sister who works as a waitress at a nice but not-too-upscale restaurant.

Gayle Rankin has been cast on the HBO drama pilot The Missionary starring Benjamin Walker and Jesse Plemons. She will play Molly Elbridge, who on the surface is the traditional, religious wife of Sherwood Elbridge (Plemons) and has an affectionately exasperated relationship to her preacher Roy (Walker) - but it is soon discovered that she has more on the ball than the men around her.

HBO has announced that the second season of The Newsroom will premiere on Sunday, July 14 at 10/9c. In the new season, the staff of "News Night" chases a mysterious tip, which leads to a story that ultimately spins out of control.

Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction) has been tapped for a guest starring role on the upcoming Showtime drama series Ray Donovan. She will play Linda, a former starlet-turned-screenwriter who befriends Ray's (Liev Schreiber) father, Mickey (Jon Voight).
