“Sex and the City” star Kristin Davis has taken her first regular TV role since the end of the HBO series in 2004: She’ll co-star in CBS’ comedy “Bad Teacher.”
The show, an adaptation of the 2011 movie that starred Cameron Diaz, stars Ari Graynor as the title character, who takes a teaching job as a way to find her next husband. Davis will play her nemesis (the part Lucy Punch had in the film), the faculty president and choir director at the school.
Davis starred in both “SATC” movies that followed the series; other recent credits include “Couples Retreat” and “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.”
More pilot casting:
– Dermot Mulroney, late of “New Girl,” will star in a political thriller at NBC from writer Rand Ravich (“Life”).

– ABC’s comedy “Divorce: A Love Story” has added Adam Goldberg (“NYC 22,” “Dazed and Confused”) to its cast. He’ll play a friend of the recently divorced Kenny (Jason Jones), who can’t stay out of his ex-wife’s (Andrea Anders) life, and vice versa.
