Fox casts 'Human Target,' 'Ab Fab' pilots
Mark Valley, Kathryn Hahn join projects
Mark Valley has been tapped as the lead in Fox's drama pilot "Human Target" for director Simon West, while Kathryn Hahn has been tapped to star in Fox's comedy pilot "Absolutely Fabulous."
"Target," from WBTV, DC Comics and McG's Wonderland, is based on the DC Comics title and centers on Christopher Chance (Valley), a mysterious security freelancer who assumes the identities of those in danger, becoming the "human target" for his clients.
Endeavor-repped Valley recurred on another Fox/WBTV drama series, "Fringe," this season.
"Ab Fab," from Sony, BBC Worldwide and Tantamount, is based on the British series and centers on best friends Eddie (Hahn) and Patsy (Kristen Johnston), two immature, trend-obsessed, booze-swilling middle-aged women clinging to their youth.
Hahn's casting stems from her talent deal with Fox. The Gersh-repped actress recently appeared in "Revolutionary Road."
