Erika Christensen and David Cross have been tapped to co-star in CBS' comedy pilot I'm in Hell. The show centers on a highflying Wall Street player (Jason Biggs) who dies in a BlackBerry-related car crash. The Hollywood Reporter adds because hell is at full capacity, he is reassigned to Hell on Earth and must figure out a way to get by without his career and all the trappings of his former existence. Christensen will play a nanny and love interest for Biggs' character who also is in the Hell on Earth program; Cross will play Scott (the devil), a sharply dressed man who serves as an emissary from hell.
