ABC's Promised Land and The CW's Powerpuff.

  • Mariel Molino has joined the cast of the drama pilot written by Matt Lopez. The casting marks the first major English-language role for Molino. She previously starred in Amazon's Spanish-language film Locas por el Cambio.
  • She will play Camila Sandoval, the youngest daughter of the Sandoval family, a wealthy vineyard-owning family in the Sonoma Valley. Her flirtatious, party-girl attitude masks a deeply flawed young woman who craves the achievements of her other siblings but has no idea how to attain them. No one expects anything from Camila. That makes her dangerous.
  • Donald Faison is set as a series regular on the drama pilot starring Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron and Yana Perreault. He previously starred for nine seasons in NBC's Scrubs and four seasons in TV Land's The Exes.
  • He will play Professor Drake Utonium. Quirky, debonair and a pinch narcissistic, he is a scientific genius who is immensely proud of the three extraordinary girls he created in his lab. Staring down a midlife crisis, he is determined to repair his relationships with his now-adult daughters.
