NBC has ordered a pair of projects from two of the stars of the network’s “Parks and Recreation.” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the net ordered comedy pilots from Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones.
“Poehler’s untitled half-hour comedy project hails from writer Charlie Grandy (‘The Mindy Project,’ ‘The Office’) and centers on Karl, who, after years of partying that earned him the ‘black sheep’ label in his royal family, returns home to compete with his brother for the family throne,” THR reports. Grandy, Poehler, Brooke Posch and Dave Becky executive produce.
Jones’ project is the multicamera ensemble comedy “Good Fortune,” from writers Craig Gerard and Matt Zinman. The show “follows a hyperstructured young woman whose life is upended when she starts taking advice from a mysterious fortune teller,” the story adds.
