With “Privileged” sitting on the bubble for renewal, star Joanna Garcia isn’t leaving her small-screen future entirely in The CW’s hands.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Garcia will take guest roles in NBC’s untitled Justin Adler comedy project and in FOX’s “Cop House.” The trade paper says that both pilot roles were originally written as regulars.

The Adler comedy focuses on adult siblings and their domineering mother. Garcia will play the shy wife of the middle sibling (“Smallville” veteran Michael Rosenbaum). Also new to the cast are Jill Clayburgh and Henry Winkler as the main characters’ mother and father.

In “Cop House,” the Brett Ratner-directed comedy about a halfway house for cops, Garcia will play the title residence’s psychologist.

Both comedies would obviously be in second position for Garcia’s services behind “Privileged,” which drew a passionate (but tiny) audience on The CW. The trade paper gives no indication of which pilot would get first dibs on Garcia if they were both picked up.

Other TV credits for Garcia include “Welcome to the Captain” and “Reba.”
