David Spade may star in a different sitcom next season.
The Rules of Engagement actor has been cast in ABC’s Bad Management along with Hangover actress Rachael Harris.

Harris plays one of the store employees. In addition to starring in the comedy, Harris is also the writer and executive producer of the pilot.Spade’s long-running CBS sitcom Rules of Engagement still has first dibs on the actor. Rules is frequently on the bubble for a pickup each year. If Rules is renewed, Bad Management will have to enlist another actor for the part.
