The single-camera project centers on a slightly self-centered female boss at a high end luxury goods department store who finds her ways challenged when the boss’s son Tobias Jr. — played by Spade — comes to town and makes youth and sex the new company focus.

Rachael Harris (Notes From the Underbelly) also joins the potential series as Linda, one of the department store’s employees.

Spade currently stars as Russell in CBS’ utility player Rules, which avoided cancellation last year despite a constantly shifting timeslot. He’s also known for his roles on Saturday Night Live, 8 Simple Rules and Just Shoot Me!.
