TBS Greenlights Steve & Nancy Carell's Police Procedural Satire "Angie Tribeca" (working title), Starring Rashida Jones

Jere Burns, Deon Cole and Andree Vermeulen also Star, With Guest Appearances by Alfred Molina, Lisa Kudrow and Gary Cole

TBS has given the greenlight to the character-driven police comedy Angie Tribeca (working title), the brainchild of Steve and Nancy Carell. Rashida Jones (The Office, Parks and Recreation) stars in the satirical look at police procedurals, along with Jere Burns (Justified, Dear John), Deon Cole (CONAN, Funny Business) and Andree Vermeulen (Laid Off, NTSF:SD:SUV). Angie Tribeca is being executive-produced by Steve and Nancy Carell through their Carousel Television, along with Campbell Smith (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) and Thom Hinkle (I Bet You). Steve and Nancy Carell also wrote the pilot, which was directed by Steve Carell.

TBS has ordered 10 episodes of Angie Tribeca, which is slated to premiere in 2015. 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 (Macarthur).

Making guest appearances in the opening episode of Angie Tribeca are Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2, Chocolat), Lisa Kudrow (Friends, Web Therapy), Gary Cole (Pineapple Express, Office Space), Nancy Carell (The Office, Bridesmaids), Hayes Macarthur (Life as We Know It, Go On) and Matthew Glave (Growing Up Fisher, Perception).

"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," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (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."
