UPDATED 5/7/2014: Bad news! I’m sorry to say that the Dead Boss pilot did not get picked up.
The Hollywood Reporter just posted some exciting news… Amy Sedaris has signed on to co-star in Dead Boss, a new pilot starring Jane Krakowski for Fox!
Dead Boss is a comedic mystery that finds overachiever Helen Stephens (Krakowski) wrongfully convicted of murdering her boss and forced to rely on her train wreck of a sister to prove her innocence.
Sedaris will play Mary, one of Helen’s nosy, fault-finding co-workers and the gatekeeper to their boss. She secretly loves the man and openly hates Helen.
Keep in mind, however, that this is a pilot… which means that it may or may not get picked up for a full season this fall. Of course, I’ll post anything I find out here, and fingers crossed, we’ll be seeing Amy on TV this fall!
