MICHAEL SCHUR RETURNS TO NBC WITH SERIES ORDER FOR UNTITLED COMEDY

Emmy Award-Winning "Parks and Recreation" Executive Producer Brings New Comedy to Network

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - Aug. 13, 2015 - NBC has given a 13-episode series commitment order to an untitled comedy from "Parks and Recreation" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" executive producer Michael Schur, one of the most respected and talented writer-showrunners in television today.

"For seven seasons, Mike Schur brought us the wonderful citizens of Pawnee, and we can't wait to see the new group of indelible characters that he'll now introduce," said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. "He came in recently and pitched the entire first season, and we loved it so much we ordered it to production. Mike prefers to keep details under wraps while he meets actors and actresses, but I can tell you that the man who brought Amy Poehler to primetime is bringing us another funny, strong and particularly complicated female character - yes, the lead is a woman - in a comedy like nothing seen before, about a woman wrestling with what it means to be good. We're very excited about this show!"

Two-time Emmy Award winner Schur has one of the most fertile minds in comedy. His NBC series "Parks and Recreation," which wrapped in February and currently Emmy nominated for best comedy series, remains one of the best-reviewed comedies in the history of television.

Schur is currently executive producer of the Universal Television-produced series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," which won a Golden Globe for outstanding comedy series in its first year of eligibility. He is also an executive producer on the Netflix comedy "Master of None," produced by Universal Television and starring Aziz Ansari. Schur has written and produced for other seminal series, including "The Office" and "Saturday Night Live."

The series will be produced by Universal Television, 3 Arts Entertainment and Fremulon. Schur and David Miner will executive produce.
