FATRICK is a new comedy from DON'T TRUST THE B----- IN APARTMENT 23's Nahnatchka Khan and Corey Nickerson, with COMMUNITY's Dan Rash on board to direct alongside Nat Faxon.
The project follows "Patrick, a 30-something moving man and formerly fat kid, who, realizing that his life isn't quite where it should be, is forced to face the damage caused by years of Being Fatrick: a chubby little kid just trying to survive. The project, which will be shifting between the present and Patrick's school years, will mark Faxon and Rash's TV directorial debut."
Cross' character Arlene is a nutritionist who is unmoving when it comes to what her family eats. Ray Ford is also in the cast.
Aside from her long-running portrayal of Bree Van De Kamp on Desperate Housewives, Cross has appeared on TV in Everwood, The King of Queens, CSI, Ally McBeal, Boy Meets World, Melrose Place, Knots Landing and more.
