Saturday Night Live chief Lorne Michaels is venturing into cable with To Love and Die in LA, a comedic hour at USA Network. The network has given a cast-contingent pilot order to the project from Michael's Broadway Video TV and NBC Universal TV Studio, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Reunion co-creator Sara Goodman penned the script of the pilot, about a fun-loving young woman with abandonment issues who decides that her dating problems will be resolved if she tracks down the father she never knew. When the woman finds him, she discovers that he is an assassin and realizes she might have found her calling.
