Rashida Jones is heading to “Tribeca,” as the “Parks and Rec” star has been tapped to topline the Steve Carell comedy pilot at TBS.

Single-cam project is a satirical police comedy that centers on Angie Tribeca, played by Jones. Tribeca is a 10-year vet of LAPD’s elite RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit) and leads her brilliant but eclectic group of cops.

“Tribeca” hails from husband-wife duo Steve and Nancy Carell, who penned the pilot and serve as exec producers. Steve Carell is directing the pilot, as well. TBS ordered a pilot for the project in November.
