Rashida Jones to Star in Steve Carell's TBS Sitcom <i>Tribeca</i>

While Parks and Recreation fans are mourning the upcoming loss of Ann Perkins, the actress behind her is wasting no time in finding a new gig.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jones is set to star in a new sitcom on TBS in which she will play the title character, Angie Tribeca. The comedy comes from Steve and Nancy Carell, and is said to be a satire of police procedurals. Jones’ character will be a veteran officer working in the Really Heinous Crimes Unit, or RHCU. She is described as “a lone wolf who is capable, committed, strong and not thrilled when she’s told she has to work with a partner.”
