The project is described as a satirical look at a police procedural, which revolves around Angie Tribeca, a 10-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department's RHCU (also known as the Really Heinous Crimes Unit). Jones will play Tribeca  — described as “a lone wolf, capable, committed, strong and not thrilled when told she has to work with a partner” and a “cut-to-the-chase gal who speaks her mind” and “treads where many fear to venture.”

Jones is currently in her final season on “Parks and Recreation.”
