Judy Greer to Star in Fox Workplace Comedy Pilot From Laura Steinel

Judy Greer has been tapped to star in an untitled workplace comedy pilot from Fox that hails from writer Laura Steinel, Variety has learned.

The comedy will center around Jane (Greer), who is stuck between managing her human resources department as well as the new CEO, who harbors big ambitions for the New Jersey plastics plant.

The comedy is Greer’s latest small-screen gig; her FX series “Married” was cancelled after two seasons. She’s also had smaller TV and film roles on “Mom,” “Mad Love,” “Love & Money,” “Miss Guided,” Marvel’s “Ant-Man” and “Jurassic World.”

Scribe Steinel will also co-exec produce. “The League’s” Jeff Schaffer is set to direct the pilot, and he will also serve as an executive producer with Sue Naegle (“Outcast”). 20th Century Fox Television is the studio.

Greer is the latest female star to topline a Fox pilot this season, joining the likes of Niecy Nash in buddy cop comedy “The Enforcers” and Kylie Bunbury, who will play a female baseball player in the network’s drama project “Pitch.”
