The Visitors of ABC's V reboot have found their leader, and her face is familiar to sci-fi fans.

Inside the Box, the Shonda Rhimes-produced ABC pilot about a Washington, D.C. network news bureau, has found its female lead, and she is perhaps more Earl Grey than Meredith Grey.

Eddie Cibrian and Teri Polo have been tapped to play husband and wife on Washington Field, CBS' drama pilot from Criminal Minds boss Ed Bernero and revolving around an elite team of globe-trotting FBI experts. Think Super Friends, but minus the annoying purple monkey.

We're starting to see the new Melrose Place lineup take shape, but the powers that be need your help! The CW has recently green-lit the pilot, to be directed by Oscar winner Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth — yes, you read that correctly).
First up, Swingtown's Michael Rady (he has also appeared on Greek) has signed on to fill the new "Billy" slot as an aspiring filmmaker. Next: Katie Cassidy, Supernatural's demon Ruby and a cast member of CBS' upcoming Harper's Island (which, if you've read anything about the horror-mystery drama, chances are she dies, so don't worry), is playing a character that sounds a lot like Amanda Woodward.
Rumors persist that the producers are actively pursuing Grant Show and Heather Locklear to reprise their roles from the original. Then there is that pesky Mischa Barton rumor.
But before things get out of hand, let's offer them our two cents, shall we? Read on to see who we think should join the new Melrose cast...
Anastasia Griffith, Carly Pope

Kim Raver, Alyssa Milano
Lipstick would seem to be running out. That is, Lipstick Jungle's chances of a pick-up by NBC.
On the heels of Lindsay Price being cast in the ABC pilot Eastwick, Kim Raver has landed a female lead in Inside the Box, the new drama being exec-produced by Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes and set at a Washington network news bureau.
Raver will play Samantha ...
