A pilot-heavy helping of TV snacks for your afternoon enjoyment, plus news on “Happy Endings” and a CBS movie franchise.
– “Bridesmaids” co-star Rebel Wilson has teamed up with Conan O’Brien‘s production company, Conaco, for a CBS comedy pilot called “Super Fun Night.” Wilson will write and star in the project, about three nerdy women who attempt to have “super fun” every Friday. [Vulture]
– “Cougar Town” co-creator Bill Lawrence has sold “Like Father,” a comedy about the relationship between a guy and his dad, to FOX. Lawrence also has another comedy in development at CBS with Greg Malins (“How I Met Your Mother”), but it hasn’t been greenlit yet. [Hollywood Reporter]
– In other pilot news, ABC has ordered “White Van Man,” a comedy about a guy who reluctantly takes over his father’s handyman business. CBS has greenlit “Widow Detective” (we’re hoping that’s a working title), a drama about a cop who looks after the families of three former partners who were killed in the line of duty.

– Colin Hanks‘ next TV role will be much less bloody than the one he just completed on “Dexter.” Or so we assume. Hanks will play himself on an episode of “Happy Endings” later this season — the setup is that Dave’s (Zachary Knighton) food truck becomes trendy, and Hanks is among the clientele. [EW]
– CBS will air an eighth Jesse Stone movie starring Tom Selleck later this season. “Jesse Stone: Benefit of the Doubt” is set for May 20, and in addition to starring, Selleck also co-wrote the script for the film. [CBS]
