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.
