Erika Christensen and David Cross have been tapped to co-star in CBS' comedy pilot I'm in Hell. Meanwhile, former American Idol finalist Lisa Tucker has been cast in the Fox drama pilot Born in the USA and Janina Gavankar has been added to the CW comedy pilot Dash 4 Cash.

I'm in Hell, from CBS Paramount Network TV, centers on a highflying Wall Street player (Jason Biggs) who dies in a BlackBerry-related car crash, but 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. Christensen, who co-stars on ABC's Six Degrees, next appears in Gardener of Eden, directed by Kevin Connolly and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, which is slated to premiere this month at the Tribeca Film Festival. She is repped by UTA and the Collective.
