Megan Hilty lands role in Adam Carolla comedy

Reno Wilson and Katy Mixon have landed co-starring roles on the Chuck Lorre-produced CBS pilot "Mike and Molly," and Megan Hilty has joined NBC's untitled Adam Carolla comedy pilot.

"Mike and Molly," from WBTV, is a romantic multicamera comedy about Mike, an overweight charming police officer, and Molly, a pretty and plump woman, who meet at Overeaters Anonymous.

Wilson ("Crank: High Voltage") will play Mike's partner at the police department who teases him mercilessly. He is repped by Domain and Jackson/Medavoy.

Mixon ("Eastbound & Down") will play Molly's older sister.

The Adam Carolla single-camera comedy, from UMS, stars Carolla as a contractor who embarks on rebuilding his life after a divorce.

Hilty will play a trophy wife, a ball-busting client from hell who has hired Carolla and his crew to remodel her kitchen.

Hilty, whose Broadway credits include "Wicked" and "9 to 5," is repped by Gersh and One Entertainment.
