Steve Carell to direct the pilot for 'Tribeca'

TBS has ordered a pilot for “Tribeca,” a satirical police comedy from Steve and Nancy Carell.

Hailing from Carell’s shingle Carousel Television, “Tribeca” offers a satirical look at a police procedural. Anchored by Angie Tribeca, a 10-year vet of LAPD’s elite RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit), the single-cam comedy explores and eccentric but brilliant group of people who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information, and refuse to refuse to rest until justice has been served…sort of.

Husband-wife duo Steve and Nancy Carell serve as scribes and exec producers on the project. Steve Carell will helm the pilot.

In addition to the pilot order at TBS, Fox recently ordered gameshow “Slide Show” to series from the “Office” alum.
