TCA: USA greenlights Shiri Appleby drama

ShiriapplebyYou loved her in “Roswell” — now she’s all grown up and has intimacy issues to boot. USA Network confirmed during its TCA presentation Sunday that it has given a 12-seg order to the Shiri Appleby starrer “To Love & Die” from Lorne Michael’s Broadway Video Entertainment and Universal Media Studios. Series is set to bow next year. Revolves around Appleby (pictured) as a young woman, Hildy, who becomes convinced her misadventures in dating will never end until she makes peace with the father she’s never really known. Tim Matheson plays that AWOL dad; Frances Fisher plays Hildy’s overbearing mother who’s on husband No. 7 at the time her daughter begins her quest for dad, who happens to be a professional hit man. USA Network programming guru Jeff Wachtel bills it as a light-touch drama about a “high concept character with a slightly twisted soul.” “Love and Die” hails from tyro creator/exec producer Sara Goodman (Fox’s short-lived “Reunion.”)
