Coming off his directorial debut on Sundance pic Hits, David Cross has been tapped as a guest star on Fox‘s half-hour pilot Dead Boss, from WBTV and Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment. An adaptation of the BBC3 series created by Sharon Horgan and Holly Walsh, Dead Boss is a comedic mystery that finds overachiever Helen Stephens (Jane Krakowski), who is wrongfully convicted of murdering her boss and is forced to rely on her train wreck of a sister to prove her innocence. Cross will play Derek Bridges, the narcissistic, credit-stealing, misogynistic “dead boss”. He is with UTA, BEP and attorney Harris Hartman.
