LOS ANGELES – Two stars and the creator of "Everybody Loves Raymond" may be coming back to television, but not as a package deal.
Patricia Heaton, who played Ray Romano's wife in the long-running CBS comedy, is making a half-hour pilot for ABC in which she plays a widowed mom who gets involved with a parent-teacher organization.
Justine Bateman and Mo Collins also are in the cast, a network spokeswoman said Thursday.
Brad Garrett, who played Romano's brother, is starring in the Fox pilot "'Til Death" as a married man whose next-door neighbors are newlyweds, a Fox spokesman said. A talked-about "Raymond" spinoff for CBS starring Garrett didn't came to fruition.
"Raymond" creator Phil Rosenthal is working on "Play Nice," a comedy pilot for CBS about a brother and sister running a family-owned toy company. The cast includes Sara Rue, Timm Sharp, Fred Willard, Swoosie Kurtz and Tom McGowan.
All the pilots are under consideration for the 2006-07 season.
"Everybody Loves Raymond," which wrapped in 2005 after nine seasons, won two Emmy Awards for Heaton and three for Garrett.
