Patton Oswalt To Star In Fox Workplace Comedy Pilot

Patton Oswalt HR Pilot

Actor-comedian Patton Oswalt is set as the male lead opposite Judy Greer in Fox’s untitled Laura Steinel comedy pilot (aka HR).

The project, from 20th Century Fox TV, centers on Jane (Greer), the overused and underappreciated head of Human Resources for a plastics molding plant, who is caught between trying to manage her charmingly incompetent HR department and an eccentric new CEO Sam (Oswalt), who dreams of bringing the New Jersey plastics plant into the future. Sam lives life at a higher octave than everyone else, and is an “ideas” guy, however none of his ideas is suitable for this small-town plant.

Oswalt provides the narration on ABC’s The Goldbergs and voices Netflix’s BoJack Horseman. He has recurred on Veep, Justified, American Dad! and Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Oswalt is repped by UTA, Generate, and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
