Pilot Scoop: TBS Orders Steve Carell's Tribeca

Fox Orders Slide ShowTBS has collared Tribeca, a comedy pilot written and produced by Steve Carell and his wife Nancy, TVLine has learned.

The half-hour, single-camera project is described as a satirical look at a police procedural anchored by Angie Tribeca, a 10-year veteran of the LAPD’S elite RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit).  Angie is surrounded by an eccentric but brilliant group of detectives who reveal way too much personal information, and refuse to rest until justice has been served (or not). These dedicated men and women are more than counter-intuitive; they are non-intuitive

Carell, who will not appear onscreen (save for the occasional guest spot), will direct the pilot.

    I will watch anything with Steve Carrel’s name on it!

    So Steve Carell has two shows in the works. Looks like he is going to drop a deuce on everybody.

    What happened to his show about his days as a mail carrier? It was going to my town’s claim to fame since that’s where he worked!

    Sound like a slightly kookier California-ized version of Brooklyn 99. Kind of weird to call it Tribeca though, as most people are going to associate that with the NY neighborhood and wonder why it’s set in LA.

    (Also possible that outside of New York no one knows where Tribeca is???)

    Sounds awful

    Nobody remembers the short-lived TV series Tribeca in the mid-90s, produced by Robert DeNiro, starring KEVIN SPACEY and LAURENCE FISHBURNE? I think it was ahead of its time and should be re-aired by somebody. They should name this new series something else.
