Two for NBC's 'Lost & Found'

ABC midseason comedy 'Motherhood's' cast also grows

Josh Cooke has been tapped to co-star in NBC's drama pilot "Lost & Found," which Michael Engler has come aboard to direct.

Meanwhile, Jessica St. Clair has joined ABC's midseason comedy series "In the Motherhood" as a regular.

"Lost & Found," from Wolf Films and UMS, centers on Tessa (Katee Sackhoff), an offbeat LAPD detective who, after butting heads with the higher-ups, is sent as a punishment to the basement to work on John and Jane Doe cases.

Cooke will play Max, a psychiatrist treating Tessa who had a crush on her when they were in school together. He is repped by APA and Untitled.

Engler recently directed the pilots "Single With Parents," a comedy for ABC, and the drama "Privileged," which was picked up to series by the CW.

"Motherhood," from ABC Studios, stars Megan Mullally and Cheryl Hines in an adaptation of the online series based on real-life stories of moms throughout the country. The first episode of the series will be directed by Richard Shepard.

St. Clair, repped by CAA and Mosaic, plays Hines' intimidating younger sister, who lets her kids run wild in the name of letting them express who they are. St. Clair, who recurs on CBS' "Worst Week," joins recently cast Horatio Sanz, who plays Hines' "manny."
