Executive producer Steve Carell brings Angie Tribeca, starring Rashida Jones. Coming to TBS in 2015!
Steve Carell and his wife Nancy just sold a series to TBS.
The cable net has given a thumbs-up to Angie Tribeca, which will be a satire on police procedurals. The single-camera comedy will star Rashida Jones and will revolve around an eccentric group of Los Angeles detectives. Jones plays Angie Tribeca, a lone wolf who’s capable, committed, strong and not thrilled when her boss (Jere Burns,Justified) tells her she has to work with a new partner.
Making guest appearances in the opening episode of Angie Tribeca are Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Lisa Kudrow (Friends, Web Therapy), Gary Cole (Pineapple Express), Nancy Carell (Bridesmaids), Hayes Macarthur (Life as We Know It) and Matthew Glave (Growing Up Fisher).

Steve Carell to Write, Direct TBS Comedy Pilot ‘Tribeca’
The single-camera comedy is based on an original idea by Steve and his wife, Nancy.
TBS is going into the Steve Carell business.
The Turner-owned cable network has ordered a comedy pilot written and executive produced by The Office alum and his wife, Nancy Carell, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The couple created and will write and executive produce Tribeca, 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. 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 nonintuitive. Carell will direct the pilot, which hails from his Carousel Productions banner.
For TBS, the comedy joins fellow pilots Do It Yourself starring Bill Engvall and the untitled half-hour from Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine, Conan).Should Tribeca move to series, it would join a roster that includes Bill Lawrence’s upcoming comedy Ground Floor, the 10th season of American Dad, Cougar Town, Sullivan & Son, Men at Work and a roster of unscripted fare.
Tribeca comes as Carousel continues its push into television. The banner recently set up unscripted celebrity competition series Slide Show at Fox, with Shine America on board to produce.
For her part, Nancy Carell is a Saturday Night Live alum whose credits also include The Goode Family, The Office and roles in Bridesmaids and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, among others.

I was told there would be all these attractive singles and as far as I can tell, I’m the best looking person here.
