Networking: Berkeley cast in NBC, ABC pilots


Xander Berkeley has joined the cast of NBC's drama pilot "Day One" as a regular and ABC's drama pilot "Inside the Box" as a recurring.

On UMS' "Day One," about residents of an apartment complex who bond after a cataclysmic event, Berkeley will play Clark, who is seriously injured in an explosion and whose daughter goes missing.

In "Box," about a news producer (Indira Varma) who runs a Washington network-news bureau, Berkeley will play her boss, the network's executive vp.

He is repped by Domain and Mosaic.

In other notable pilot castings, Noa Tishby is set to guest star on ABC's untitled Dave Hemingson drama pilot. She next appears in Warner Bros.' romantic comedy "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past." (partialdiff)
