Development News - April 18, 2017

FX's Singularity and TNT's Deadlier Than the Male.

  • The cable network has ordered a pilot for drama Deadlier Than the Male written by Harriet Warner. She executive produces with Bruna Papandrea and Casey Haver. Studio T and Made Up Stories produce. The project centers on a trio of characters, each with a mysterious and troubling past, including a woman who once looked into the eyes of a dangerous killer, a former serial predator desperate to find redemption and a grieving mother obsessed with finding her missing daughter. As each of them is pushed to the edge, the truth about their pasts and their motives grow ever murkier, blurring the lines between victim and perpetrator.
  • Michelle Buteau (Broad City, Key & Peele) has been cast on the comedy pilot starring Damon Wayans Jr. She will play Nancy, Doug's (Wayans Jr.) girlfriend, an opinionated and outspoken woman who knows what she wants and liberally uses technology to get it.
