Jessica Phillips, most recently seen on Broadway in Leap of Faith, and Josh Segarra, a featured member of Off-Broadway's Dogfight, will appear in the FX sitcom pilot "Bronx Warrants," according to the NY Post.
"Bronx Warrants," which centers on a group of Bronx-based warrant detectives, is created and produced by Dean Lorey ("Arrested Development," "My Wife and Kids"), Denis Leary ("Rescue Me") and Jim Serpico.
Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis (Curtains, 1776, Steel Pier) directed the pilot, which featured Phillips as Adele, the wife of DeStefano, who is played by Robert Kelly. Also in the cast is stand-up comedian Godfrey.
"Bronx Warrants" is based on the life of co-producers David Joglar and Richard Wetzel. Tom Sellitti is a co-executive producer on the pilot.
Phillips has also been seen on Broadway in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Next to Normal and The Scarlet Pimpernel.
Segarra made his Broadway debut in last season's Lysistrata Jones.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
