SNL Vet Andy Samberg to Star in Fox Comedy Pilot from Parks and Recreation Creator

Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg has been cast in an untitled Fox comedy pilot from Parks and Recreation co-creator Mike Schur and executive producer Dan Goor, our sister site Deadline reports.

The single-camera project revolves around a diverse group of detectives in a precinct at the very edge of New York City. Samberg, who departed the NBC sketch show at the end of last season, will play the lead investigator.

“Andy’s hilarious, and he was the first guy we thought of when we designed the part,” Schur and Goor tell the site. “From the moment we mentioned his name, everyone at Universal Television and Fox was 100% on-board. Andy loved the pitch, and it all came together really quickly. We couldn’t be happier.”
