That ’60s show cast

'Honey' pins up McCarthy; CBS getting 'Late'

Jenny McCarthy is in talks to star as “Honey Vicarro,” a Fox comedy pilot about a fictional sexy 1960s crime fighting P.I.

Also, CBS has given a late pickup to “Late Bloomers,” a half-hour pilot from scribes/exec producers Mitchel Katlin and Nat Bernstein.

“Honey Vicarro,” from 20th Century Fox TV and Regency TV, revolves around the lead character of a 1966 TV series. In the show-within-the-show, Vicarro fights crime and saves swingers in Los Angeles while driving her 1964 Shelby Cobra.

Premise behind the “Honey Vicarro” is the skein was so cutting edge that it was yanked from the airwaves; therefore, Fox has dusted off never-before seen episodes of the “series” and will now air it 35 years later.

ICM and Talent Entertainment Group rep McCarthy, who has a talent deal with Fox. The actress was teamed last fall with Ira Ungerleider on a pilot for 20th Century Fox TV and Columbia TriStar TV; Fox ultimately passed on that project. Once McCarthy became available, she became a front runner to play “Vicarro.”

McCarthy previously starred in the 1997 NBC comedy “Jenny”; before that, she co-hosted MTV’s dating show “Singled Out” and also starred in MTV’s “The Jenny McCarthy Show.”

McCarthy’s film credits include “Scream 3,” “Diamonds,” “BASEketball” and “Python.”

As for “Late Bloomers,” skein will revolve around a group of middle-aged men and their various ups and downs. One insider dubbed the concept “No Sex in the City.”

Katlin and Bernstein, who have an overall deal with Artists Television Group, created “The Weber Show,” formerly known as “Cursed.” Duo’s other credits include “The Gregory Hines Show” and “Over the Top.”
