It’s been known for almost a year that Rashida Jones, along with Rob Lowe, is hightainling it out of Parks and Rec, for other opportunities. However, those opportunities were never clear. She sold two shows under her production company, but declined to star in either one.
Now it’s clear. She’ll be starring in a cop comedy called Tribeca that’s produced and pitched by Steve Carell and his wife, Nancy Walls. Lest you jump to a completely logic conclusion, let me state that the show will be set in LA, and Tribeca is the name of Jones’ character. Well then.
Jones’ Tribeca will be paired with a partner she doesn’t immediately gel with, but something tells me, over time, they’ll become a friends, or failing that, respect each other’s differences. Because that’s how these things work.
