Reid to get ‘Hitched’

Hudlin joins 'Everybody'

Reggie Hudlin (“Serving Sara”) has signed on to direct Chris Rock’s UPN pilot “Everybody Hates Chris.”

Meanwhile, on the casting scene, Tara Reid has joined Fox’s drama pilot “Hitched,” while Christine Baranski is new to the ABC comedy project “Adopted.”

“Everybody Hates Chris,” based loosely on Rock’s own upbringing, is a “Wonder Years”-esque take on the world of an eldest child living in a strict home and attending a predominantly white school in 1982.

Paramount Network TV is behind the laffer, which will be exec produced by Rock, Ali LeRoi, Michael Rotenberg and Dave Becky.

Hudlin is also exec producing the animated version of comicstrip “The Boondocks” for Cartoon Network. The helmer, scribe and occasional thesp also directed features “The Ladies Man,” “The Great White Hype” and “Boomerang.” He also directed episodes of “Bernie Mac” and “City of Angels.”

Reid, meanwhile, has signed a talent deal with Fox in addition to the “Hitched” gig. Spelling TV pilot revolves around a Las Vegas wedding chapel.

Reid’s recent credits include a recurring role on “Scrubs.” She was also seen in the first two “American Pie” features, as well as the film “My Boss’s Daughter.”

Baranski will play Judy on “Adopted,” the laffer about a young man who discovers he’s adopted — and suddenly has two different mothers.

The “Cybill” star has also been seen in the laffer “Welcome to New York” and in a guest stint on “Frasier.” Feature credits include “Chicago” and “Welcome to Mooseport.”

Also in casting news, Amy Aquino will guest in the WB’s untitled Jonathan Shapiro pilot as Judge McLaughlin. Drama project, from Warner Bros. TV and Bruckheimer TV, follows a 17-year-old lawyer.

Aquino recently guested on “Crossing Jordan” and “ER.”
