TBS Wednesday confirmed that it has issued a series order to “Angie Tribeca” (working title), a character-driven police comedy that stars Rashida Jones.
Conceived by Steve and Nancy Carell, the series functions as a satire of police procedurals. Jere Burns, Deon Cole and Andree Vermeulen join Jones in the regular cast, while Gary Cole, Alfred Molina and Lisa Kudrow are confirmed for guest appearances.
“The single-camera comedy focuses on an eccentric but brilliant group of LAPD detectives who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information and refuse to rest until justice has been served…sort of. Jones plays Angie Tribeca, a lone wolf who’s capable, committed, strong and not thrilled when her boss (Burns) tells her she has to work with a partner (guest star Hayes Macarthur).
“Angie Tribeca is a hilarious spoof of police procedurals in the spirit of The Naked Gun, with a terrific cast and a wickedly funny point of view,” adds Michael Wright, Head of Programming for TNT, TBS and TCM. “We’re proud to be working with the outstanding comedy talents behind Angie Tribeca, especially Nancy and Steve Carell and the incredibly talented Rashida Jones.”
The ten episode inaugural season will premiere in 2015.
