LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Husband-and-wife acting duo Tisha Campbell-Martin and Duane Martin have landed regular roles on two comedy pilots: ABC's "Wright vs. Wrong" and NBC's "Next," respectively.

"Wright vs. Wrong" stars Debra Messing as Evelyn Wright, a strong-minded, ambitious political personality who appears tough and espouses a right-wing agenda but behind the scenes is consumed by her foibles and flaws.

Campbell-Martin ("Martin") will play Evelyn's stylist, who can't name the Vice President but knows all the Hollywood gossip. She most recently co-starred on Lifetime's "Rita Rocks."

Paul Reiser stars in the semi-autobiographical "Next" as a former television star and family man dealing with life's day-to-day conundrums. Martin ("All of Us") will play his friend, a restaurant owner.
