The light drama "Terriers" stars Donal Logue and Michael Ramond-James as a former cop and his best friend who are endeavoring to start their own detective business. Project reunites FX with "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan, who executive produces with "Terriers" creator Ted Griffin.
In "Lights Out," Holt McCallany will play an ex-heavyweight boxing champ struggling to reconnect with his family after retiring from the ring. Warren Leight, Justin Zackman, Phillip Noyce and Ross Fineman executive produce.
"Terriers" will debut this summer, followed by "Lights Out" later in the year.
Elsewhere, the network's "Damages" has added Reiko Aylesworth to the upcoming third season, according to EW.com. She joins new additions Martin Short and Campbell Scott, who were announced last week alongside guest stars Lily Tomlin and Keith Carradine.
