TV Bites: Lizzy Caplan Holds Out on Mad Love
· Later this morning, CBS will makes its upfront presentation but one pilot may be mysteriously missing from the pick-ups: Mad Love. The Eye is reportedly passing on the project after it could not nail down Lizzy Caplan as a regular lead because of her allegiance to Party Down and a few other film projects in the works. The actress filmed the pilot as a favor and the network liked her but she allegedly rebuffed all of the Eye's offers to sign on as a lead. If Mad Love does survive, it will probably be a midseason pickup -- with Caplan returning in guest star capacity -- or it will be reshot in the summer. [Deadline]
