Two of the stars of NBC’s perennial Emmy nominee “Parks and Recreation” are headed back to the network with a new series. NBC announced a six-episode order for “The Handmade Project,” a competition series from Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.
The show is a celebration of artisanship, with competitors doing their best to make things by hand that will impress Poehler, Offerman and a lineup of expert judges.
Poehler and Offerman starred for seven seasons on “Parks and Rec,” which chalked up 15 Emmy nominations — including five for Poehler for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Leslie Knope — before the show wrapped in 2015. “Saturday Night Live” alumna Poehler was also a producer and a writer on the sitcom, and both Poehler and Offerman directed a few episodes.
