David Spade is set to bring the funny in a new workplace comedy.
The 48-year-old actor, who is known for his roles in numerous sitcoms, is set to star in ABC's new comedy series "Bad Management," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Bad Management," which will see Spade playing Tobias Eastmore Jr., is a single-camera comedy about a slightly self-centered female boss at a high-end luxury goods department store. The strong-willed business woman finds her way challenged when the boss' son, played by Spade, comes to town and makes youth and sex the new company focus.
"New Girl" actress Rachael Harris has also been tapped to appear in the comedy series, and is set to play one of the department store employees. The "Wreck-It Ralph" actress, who has also appeared in shows such as USA's "Suits" and ABC's "Happy Endings," will play Linda, an optimistic character who has a history of making bad decisions about work and men.
The series will also star actress Sharon Horgan of "Dead Boss," who will co-write the comedy with Holly Walsh.
The network has yet to announce an official release date.
Spade is known for his work on numerous television shows, including "Just Shoot Me," "Saturday Night live," "8 Simple Rules" and his current CBS series, "Rules of Engagement." The actor has also appeared in films such as "The Emperor's New Groove," "Joe Dirt" and "Grown Ups."
His current CBS show, which debuted in 2007, sees the actor playing a single bachelor who deals with the complications of dating, commitment and marriage alongside his friends.
