Keri Russell Joining Fox’s Wilde Kingdom


Keri Russell (“Felicity”) is in negotiations to star opposite Will Arnett in Fox’s comedy “Wilde Kingdom.”

In the show, Arnett stars as a Beverly Hills jackass who falls in love with a charitable tree-hugging woman (Russell) who can’t stand his lifestyle or values.

“Arrested Development” creator Mitch Hurwitz is directing the pilot, which he co-wrote with Arnett and “Development” writer/producer Jim Vallely. Lionsgate and Tantamount are producing.
