Jane Krakowski to Star in Fox Comedy 'Dead Boss'

Jane Krakowski's getting more camera — I mean cam-er-ah — time in the form of a leading role on a new Fox comedy. According to Deadline, the 30 Rock star has signed on for the lead role in Dead Boss, an adaptation of Sharon Horgan and Holly Walsh's BBC3 series. Krakowski will play Horgan's original role Helen Stephens, an overachiever "wrongfully convicted of murdering her boss and forced to rely on her train wreck of a sister to prove her innocence." Production is reportedly moving to New York where Krakowski — who has been a hotly sought-after actor for pilot season this year — is based.
