A number of the key players from NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” have a new comedy project in the works for Netflix. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that “Parks” co-creator Mike Schur, co-exec producer Alan Yang and star Aziz Ansari are behind the untitled project.
The moves comes less than two months after “Parks” shut down following a seven-season run on NBC.
“Ansari and Yang co-created the new series, which will feature a cast that includes Ansari, Jon Benjamin (Netflix’s ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ reboot, ‘Bob’s Burgers’), Lena Waithe (‘The Comeback’), Eric Wareheim (‘Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!’), Noel Wells (‘SNL’) and Kelvin Yu (writer for ‘Bob’s Burgers’),” THR reports. “The logline and plot details are being kept under wraps, but the series had been rumored to be loosely based on Ansari’s life.”
Universal Television is producing the new project.
