The Hollywood Reporter just posted some exciting news… Amy Sedaris has signed on to co-star in Dead Boss, a new pilot starring Jane Krakowski for Fox!
Dead Boss is a comedic mystery that finds overachiever Helen Stephens (Krakowski) wrongfully convicted of murdering her boss and forced to rely on her train wreck of a sister to prove her innocence.
Sedaris will play Mary, one of Helen’s nosy, fault-finding co-workers and the gatekeeper to their boss. She secretly loves the man and openly hates Helen.
Keep in mind, however, that this is a pilot… which means that it may or may not get picked up for a full season this fall. Of course, I’ll post anything I find out here, and fingers crossed, we’ll be seeing Amy on TV this fall!

Here’s more about the special from Animal Planet: “Lil BUB’s owner, Mike, is heading out on the town for the night, but Lil BUB has plans to watch Andrew W.K.’s new clip show at a slumber party with her wild assortment of friends. And, as the saying goes, when Lil BUB’s dude is away, the cat will play! So, Mike enlists a special ‘bubbysitter,’ Amy Sedaris, to look after the party and make sure things don’t get too catty. Amy is the cat’s meow when it comes to bubbysitting, playing charades with the gang and ordering a pizza with outlandish toppings that is sure to please all. But, no matter how cool of a cat Amy is, she can’t stop Lil BUB and her friends from partaking in prank phone calls, pillow fights and other hijinks. And, to top the night off, Lil BUB unveils a ‘purrfect’ surprise – her special brand of space magic that leaves everyone open jawed with tongues out!”
