Rashida Jones to Headline Tribeca, TBS Comedy Pilot from Steve Carell
Rashida Jones‘ post-Parks and Recreation future just became a lot clearer.
The actress has copped the lead role in TBS’ single-camera comedy pilot Tribeca, co-created and directed by Steve Carell, our sister site Deadline reports.
The satirical project explores an eccentric yet capable group of people who investigate crimes while revealing way too much about themselves.
Jones — who will exit NBC’s Parks and Rec this season — stars as Angie Tribeca, a 10-year veteran of the LAPD’s Really Heinous Crimes Unit (RHCU) who is not thrilled when she is assigned a new partner.
Carell, of course, starred on The Office, on which Jones also appeared as Karen Filippelli. He co-wrote the Tribeca pilot with his actress-wife Nancy Carell (aka Michael Scott’s girlfriend Carol Stills).Follow @VladaGelman
