Rob Bowman storms ABC’s ‘Castle’

Ken Marino to star in Fox's 'Outnumbered'

Rob Bowman (“The X-Files”) has signed to direct the ABC pilot “Castle,” while two other pilots have added cast members.

“Castle,” from ABC Studios and Armyan Bernstein’s Beacon Television, centers on a horror novelist who consults for the NYPD. Andrew Marlowe wrote the pilot and will exec produce with Bernstein and Laurie Zaks.

Bowman has worked on a number of ABC series in recent years, including “Day Break” and “Night Stalker.” He directed dozens of “X-Files” segs as well as the 1998 “X” feature.

Elsewhere on the pilot watch Monday:

  • Ken Marino (“Reaper,” “Men Behaving Badly”) has been tapped for a lead role in Fox’s comedy “Outnumbered,” playing the dad in the family laffer from MRC and Hat Trick. Also new to the cast: Brooke Bloom (“Carpoolers”).

  • Brooke D’Orsay (“Room 10”) and Rick Peters (“Heroes”) have joined CBS’s Fred Savage laffer “Single White Millionaire,” from Warner Bros. TV.
