Parks and Recreation‘s Rashida Jones to Join Steven Carell Project “Tribeca” On TBS
Here’s the spoilers for Parks and Recreation from Lesley Goldberg at The Hollywood Reporter on Jan. 21st, 2014.
The prolific producer will segue from NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” and film the pilot in February and March.
Outgoing Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones has lined up her next small-screen venture. The actress-producer has been tapped to star in TBS’ Steve Carell comedy pilot Tribeca, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Conceived by Steve Carell and his wife, Nancy, the couple will write and executive produce Tribeca, a single-camera satirical look at a police procedural anchored by Angie Tribeca (Jones), a 10-year veteran of the LAPD’s elite RHCU — Really Heinous Crimes Unit. The single-camera comedy explores an eccentric but brilliant group of people who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information and refuse to rest until justice has been served … sort of. These dedicated men and women are more than counter-intuitive; they are non-intuitive. Carell will direct the pilot, which hails from his Carousel Productions banner.
Jones’ Angie is further described as a lone wolf who is capable, committed, strong and not thrilled when she’s told she has to work with a partner. A cut-to-the-chase girl who speaks her mind, she treads where many fear to venture.
For Rashida Jones, the casting comes as she’s poised to exit NBC’s Parks and Recreation following the cult comedy’s 13th episode this season — currently scheduled for Jan. 30.
