Some familiar faces are coming back to TV, which should make some 'The O.C.' and 'Sons of Anarchy' fans pretty happy this morning.
Amazon Studios has formally ordered pilots, 'The Cosmopolitans,' starring Seth Cohen himself, Adam Brody, and the drama, 'Hand of God,' starring Clay Morrow aka Ron Perlman.
'The Cosmopolitans' is a half-hour dramatic comedy written, directed and produced by Whit Stillman ('Metropolitan'). It follows a group of American ex-pats in Paris searching for friendship, and -- what else? -- l'amour. In addition to Brody, the project also stars Chloe Sevigny (I guess that means Sevigny's A&E-turned-Lifetime series 'Those Who Kill' is pretty much dead, right?), as well as Carrie MacLemore, Dree Hemmingway, Shaun Evans, Freddy Åsblom and Adriano Giannini.
'Hand of God' comes from 'Burn Notice' scribe, Ben Watkins, and is directed by 'World War Z' director, Marc Forster. It centers on Perlman as the powerful Judge Pernell Harris, who suffers a mental breakdown and transforms into a vigilante who begins having visions and hearing voices through his ventilator-bound son.
The one-hour series also stars Dana Delany, as well as Andre Royo, Alona Tal, Julian Morris, Elizabeth McLaughlin and Garret Dillahunt.
'The Cosmopolitans' marks Brody's first regular series gig since FOX's 'The O.C.' ended back in 2007. Since then, he's appeared on 'Burning Love' and recently guest-starred on 'New Girl' as Zooey Deschanel's ex-boyfriend.
'Hand of God' is Perlman's first gig since he, uh, ended his run on FX's 'Sons of Anarchy.' He also serves as executive producer on the series.
