Fox has cast comedian and actress Amy Sedaris in a new comedy. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Sedaris is joining “Dead Boss,” a comedy pilot that stars Jane Krakowski of “30 Rock."
Based on a British series, the project features Krakowski as Helen Stephens, who has been wrongfully convicted of killing her boss. Sedaris will play one of Helen’s co-workers, a nosy character who secretly loved the boss and hates Helen, the story notes.
The project will be written by Patricia Breen of “Suburgatory,” who will also executive produce with Aaron Kaplan.
