Fox Atomic nabs ‘Celeste and Jesse’

Rashida Jones to star in her own comedy spec

Fox Atomic has snapped up Rashida Jones and Will McCormack’s spec, “Celeste and Jesse Forever,” and has attached the “I Love You, Man” actress to star.

Suzanne and Jennifer Todd (“Across the Universe”) are producing the comedy via their Team Todd shingle.

Story revolves around a young divorcing couple who try to maintain their longstanding friendship while pursuing other relationships.

Jones, who is best known for her stint on “The Office” before segueing to bigscreen fare like “I Love You, Man,” began writing the script with McCormack in August. Project marks the first script sale for Jones and her fellow thesp McCormack, whose credits include ABC’s “Brothers and Sisters” and FX’s “Dirt.” Team Todd has a number of films in various stages of development and production, including Tim Burton’s “Alice” at Disney.

Jones will next be seen on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” which premieres April 9.
