Fans of Party Down will be happy to see Ken Marino once again returning to the small screen in ABC’s comedy pilot American Judy by Judy Greer (Archer). The project follows Greer’s character, a newly married suburban housewife who struggles to raise her step-kids, deal with her mother-in-law and stay out of the line of fire of her husband’s ex-wife, who happens to be the town sheriff. Marino will star as Greer’s husband. Based on Greer’s real-life events, American Judy will be written and executive produced by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont.

In other casting news, The Descendants’ Amara Miller will be moving to 1600 Penn in the NBC presidential family comedy pilot. Starring as Marigold, the youngest daughter of the President (Bill Pullman), Miller will play one half of the family’s twins. Hit the jump for more on each project.

THR 1600-pennreported that Marino would be joining Greer in American Judy. Marino joins the cast along with Erica Ash (MADtv), who will play Mia. Other cast members include Mimi Kennedy (Midnight in Paris), Elaine Hendrix (The Parent Trap), Jadon Sand (Parenthood) and Madison Lintz (The Walking Dead).

THR also reported on Miller’s addition to the first family at 1600 Penn. The project, from 20th Century Fox, follows the dysfunctional Presidential family in which their eldest son (Josh Gad of Love and Other Drugs) returns home to become not only the family’s biggest liability, but their best hope at unity. 1600 Penn also stars Brittany Snow (Hairspray) as the over-achieving daughter and Andre Holland (Sugar) as the White House press secretary. Jason Winer (Modern Family) will direct the pilot he co-wrote with former Barack Obama speechwriter Jonathan Lovett and Gad; the trio will also executive produce.
