Playtime for Pounder on Fox pilot


After several arresting turns on drama series including "The Shield" and "ER," CCH Pounder is showing off her lighter side with a co-starring role on Fox's comedy pilot "Brothers."

Additionally, Elizabeth Regen has joined Lifetime's untitled Sherri Shepherd comedy pilot and Elizabeth Ho has come aboard NBC's comedy pilot "100 Questions for Charlotte Payne."

"Brothers" centers on the relationship between a retired NFL player (Michael Strahan) and his wheelchair-bound brother (Darryl Mitchell). Pounder is in negotiations to play their mother.

The Lifetime project centers on Sherri (Shepherd), who works at a law firm and contends with her husband's infidelity. Regen, repped by Domain and Framework, will play the new girl at the office.

"Payne" centers on Charlotte (Sophie Winkleman). Ho, repped by Stone Manners and Cirrincione and Associates, will play a business partner and best friend. (partialdiff)
