A regular body of work for new 'Miami' M.E.
EmptyMegalyn Echikunwoke, who last month joined CBS' "CSI: Miami" as a recurring, has been bumped up to series regular.
Meanwhile, Anjelah Johnson and Juliette Goglia have joined TBS' untitled Dave Caplan comedy pilot, Jill Flint has come aboard USA's 90-minute pilot "Royal Pains," and Jared Kusnitz and G Hannelius have joined the CW series "Surviving Suburbia."
On "CSI: Miami," Echikunwoke plays new medical examiner Dr. Tara Price. Her first appearance will be in Episode 2 of the forensic drama's upcoming seventh season.
TBS' project centers on newly separated Claire (Valerie Bertinelli), who is raising two teens while running a lumber business. Johnson, repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Generate, plays Marla, a ditzy cashier. Goglia plays Kelsey, Claire's daughter.
"Pains" focuses on an ex-ER doctor (Mark Feuerstein) who becomes the on-call doctor for the rich denizens of the Hamptons. Flint, repped by Innovative and manager Emily Gerson-Saines, plays local hospital administrator Jill Casey.
"Suburbia" centers on Steve (Bob Saget), a misanthropic family man in suburbia trying his best to be left alone. Kusnitz and Hannelius will play Steve and Anne's (Cynthia Stevenson) kids. In addition, Jere Burns is set to guest-star as Dr. Jim. (partialdiff)
