TBS to Pick Up THE WEDDING BAND and Drop HOUND DOGS and BRAIN TRUST

Cable networks are getting in on the pilot pick-up and dropping action, too. Deadline reports that TBS will announce Wednesday that it has ordered the hour-long comedy pilot THE WEDDING BAND to series.

The news is not as good for TBS’ other two hour-long pilots: Hound Dogs, about a Nashville minor league baseball team, and Brain Trust, the D.B. Sweeney procedural about three geniuses who help a detective solve cases. Both of those pilots have been axed.

The Wedding Band follows best friends Tommy the bachelor (Brian Austin Green, Desperate Housewives) and Eddie the married dad (Peter Cambor, NCIS: Los Angeles) who anchor a wedding band. Harold Perineau (Lost), Kathryn Fiore, Jenny Wade (The Good Guys), and Melora Hardin (The Office) also star.

I love this cast, so I will definitely be tuning in. How about you?
