After an extensive search, Allison Miller has landed the female lead in NBC's upcoming drama series "Kings."

Meanwhile, Patrick Adams and Mae Whitman have been cast in ABC's one-hour pilot "Good Behavior." Adams is repped by agent Marni Rosenzweig, manager Andy Corren and attorney Lev Ginsburg.

"Kings," from Universal Media Studios, is a contemporary take on the story of King David that centers on David Shepherd (Christopher Egan), a pure-hearted young warrior who joins the court of the charismatic and authoritative King Silas (Ian McShane).

In the project, whose two-hour pilot will be directed by Francis Lawrence, up-and-comer Miller will play Michelle Benjamin, Silas' daughter, who falls in love with David. She is repped by ICM and Beth Goldstein Management.

"Behavior," from ABC Studios and writer Rob Thomas, is a dramedy based on the New Zealand format "Outrageous Fortune" that centers on the matriarch of a family of criminals who straightens out her brood after her husband ends up in the clink for five years.

Adams will play Van and Haden, the couple's identical twin sons, one a successful young lawyer and one a dimwit who still lives at home and plots ill-fated schemes.

Whitman will play Roxy, the family's smart teen daughter who has been blackmailing her principal and selling hall passes and permission slips. She is repped by APA and manager Dan Spilo.
