Nate Corddry, Robert Patrick also land pilot roles

Jeri Ryan has joined ABC's drama "Body of Evidence," Nate Corddry and Jonathan Sadowski lead the cast of NBC's comedy presentation "Our Show," "The Unit" alum Robert Patrick has joined ABC's drama "Edgar Floats," Allison Miller has landed a lead in the CW's drama "Betwixt" and Alan Ruck has joined the CW's untitled Wyoming project.

Additionally, "Friday Night Lights' " Matt Lauria and Devin Kelley have come aboard Fox's drama pilot "Ridealong."

"Body" is a procedural that centers on a brilliant, tenacious medical examiner -- a part Dana Delany is in talks for -- whose background as a neurosurgeon gives her a unique and refreshing crime-solving perspective but puts her at odds with nearly everyone.

Ryan, repped by ICM and Kyle Fritz Management, will play the city's chief medical examiner. She has been recurring on TNT's "Leverage."

Larry Charles' "Our Show," executive produced by McG, is about a disparate group of people, led by brothers Mike (Corddry) and Jack (Sadowski), who begin making episodes of their favorite sci-fi show after it ends. Dan Bakkedahl and P.J. Byrne have been cast as two other members of the group.

"Edgar" centers on a a police psychologist-turned-bounty hunter who often works for a bail bondsman (Patrick) whose daughter (Alicia Witt) is Edgar's ex-wife.

"Betwixt" revolves around "changelings," who are responsible for saving humans from evil. Miller ("17 Again"), repped by ICM and Beth Goldstein Management, will play an ethereal beauty.

The Wyoming project centers on 22-year-old Gideon (Sean Faris), a horse trainer who becomes the patriarch of a Wyoming ranch responsible for his three younger sisters after their parents die. Ruck will play a nemesis who wants a chunk of Gideon's land.

On the Chicago-set cop drama "Ridealong," Kelley, repped by APA and the Group, will play a uniformed officer. Lauria, repped by Principal, will play a detective from the North Side.
