Dominic Burgess (Feud: Bette and Joan) is set for a series regular role opposite Lauren Graham on Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot Linda From HR. Written by Geoff Barbanell and Itai Grunfeld and directed by Marc Buckland, Linda From HR centers on the eponymous heroine, Linda Plugh (Graham); all it takes is one bad decision to throw Linda from HR’s monotonous, unfulfilled life into an exciting but dangerous tailspin of balancing work life, home life and a secret that could unravel everything. Burgess will play Gordon, a lovable, gossipy office-mate of Linda whose recent divorce left him with nothing but custody of the cats. Repped by Stone Manners Salners Agency and Muse Management, Burgess can currently be seen as Victor Buono opposite Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange on the FX anthology series Feud: Bette and Joan.
