ABC, NBC pilots expand casts

Jennifer Finnigan, Patrick Flueger, Rose Rollins land roles

In the latest round of pilot castings, Jennifer Finnigan is set to star opposite Joanna Garcia in ABC's untitled Shana Goldberg-Meehan comedy, Patrick Flueger has landed a co-starring role on ABC's summer series "Scoundrels," and Rose Rollins has been cast in NBC's Jerry Bruckheimer-produced drama pilot "Chase."

The untitled Goldberg-Meehan multicamera comedy, from WBTV, revolves around sisters at different stages of their romantic relationships: one (Finnigan) is in a happy, long-term relationship but isn't married, the other (Garcia) gets pregnant and winds up marrying her boyfriend.

Finnigan, who co-starred last year in the ABC pilot "Inside the Box," is repped by ICM and manager John Carrabino.

Based on the New Zealand series "Outrageous Fortune," the comedic drama "Scoundrels" centers on the matriarch (Virginia Madsen) of a family of criminals who decides it's time for her brood to go straight after her husband is sentenced to a long prison term.

Flueger will play twin brothers Logan, the only honest member of the family who is about to graduate from law school, and the not-so-smart Cal, a classic career criminal.

Flueger, who recently completed filming the thriller "Mother's Day," is repped by UTA and Nancy Kremer Management.

"Chase," from WBTV, centers on a high-priority fugitive-apprehension team in South Texas.

"The L Word" alumna Rollins, repped by Innovative and Sweeney Management, will play the group's weapons/tactical specialist.
