The Fox comedy pilot “Dead Boss,” which stars Jane Krakowski of "30 Rock," has lined up a well-known feature film director. Deadline.com reports that “Men in Black” director Barry Sonnenfeld will helm the pilot.
The project, from WBTV and Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, this week signed up comedian and actress Amy Sedaris in a co-starring role, as we reported previously. Krakowski stars as a worker who is wrongfully convicted of killing her boss.
Sonnenfeld has a connection with Kaplan, as he directed Kaplan’s first pilot as a producer, which was the ABC comedy “Funny in Farsi.”
