Coraci takes 'Hell' of a job for CBS pilot


On the heels of his success with "Click," feature helmer Frank Coraci is set to make his TV debut directing CBS' pilot "I'm in Hell."

The project, from CBS Paramount Network TV, stars Jason Biggs as a high-flying Wall Street player who dies in a BlackBerry-related car crash. 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 fabulous trappings of his former existence.

Coraci is best known for his collaborations with actor Adam Sandler. He directed the former "Saturday Night Live" star in 1998's "The Waterboy" and "The Wedding Singer" and, most recently, in "Click" last year.

Coraci recently came on board to direct 20th Century Fox's high-concept adventure-comedy "Part-Time Pirates" (HR 3/14).

He is repped by Endeavor, Management 360 and attorney Jason Sloane.
