David Cross to Play the Dead Boss in Fox's Pilot 'Dead Boss'

David Cross has been cast in a Fox pilot, his first since Arrested Development. Cross will guest star in the pilot Dead Boss as the titular "dead boss," Deadline reports. Based on the British show of the same name created by Sharon Horgan and Holly Walsh, Dead Boss stars 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski as Helen Stephens, an overachieving woman trying to prove she's innocent after being falsely convicted of murdering her narcissistic misogynistic boss, Derek Bridges (Cross). Amy Sedaris, Rachel Dratch, Cedric Yarborough, Justine Lupe, and Ravi Patel play supporting roles. David Cross recently guest starred on Community's second Dungeons & Dragons episode, which airs this Thursday, and directed his first feature, Hits, which premiered at Sundance.
