A Fox project from "Parks and Recreation" producers Mike Schur and Dan Goor has cast popular former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Andy Samberg to star, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.

Samberg will play the lead detective in the comedy about a diverse group of police officers, and he will also serve as an executive producer. The single-camera project was bought by Fox with a put-pilot commitment after a bidding war in August, the story notes.
