CBS is developing Damascus, an hourlong project starring America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) as a crusading nun who practices law on behalf of the least fortunate and has her beliefs tested when her life collides with an elitist corporate lawyer, per Deadline.

AMC has renewed Small Town Security for a third season, to premiere in 2014. Additionally, the network greenlit the unscripted series King of Arms, about the world of American arm wrestling.

• Disney XD has ordered the animated adventure series Penn Zero: Part Time Hero from Jared Bush (All of Us, Zootopia) and Sam Levine (Wreck-It Ralph, Bolt). The comedy follows a boy who suddenly lands the coolest job ever as the leader of a team of good guys.

  • Is the Damuscus show a joke? Are they for real? It sounds so stupid….America Ferrera deserves better.

    • Most CBS shows sound like jokes when you read the logline. Then once you see them… They’re still jokes.

  • Will welcome to the family make it on the air to episode 6 is now the question or will we have to wait for the DVD.

    • Or will it even receive a DVD release? I’m still waiting for shows like Ben & Kate, Bent, Don’t Trust The B– In Apartment 23, 1600 Penn, Go On and The New Normal to be released. Most, if not all, of these titles will never see the light of day. I could see Welcome To The Family being in the same boat.

      • Don’t trust the B is available on Amazon Manufacture on Demand. No extras but every episode.

  • My thoughts exactly! I hope WTTF makes it to episode 6 cause I really like Mike O’Malley and Ricardo Chavira. Yvette should add some fun as well, looking forward to this

  • I’m not sure WTTF will make it that far, which is sad. I actually like the show and think it’s pretty funny sometimes. Is it the best comedy? No. But it’s good enough to deserve better attention and ratings than it’s getting. Pairing it with ‘Parks’ was smart, but unfortunately, NBC comedies (i.e., ‘Parks,’ ‘Community,’ etc.), while fantastic, never receive viewership. Even though NBC shouldn’t, I can unfortunately see NBC giving up on WTTF before Yvette’s episode, and if not by then, then before the entire front 13 airs.
