TBS has ordered a comedy pilot from Steve Carell, who will direct and write alongside his wife Nancy through their production company, Carousel Television.
The project, called “Tribeca,” is described as a satirical look at a police procedural following Angie Tribeca, a 10-year veteran of the LAPD’S elite RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit).
According to TBS, the single-camera comedy “explores an eccentric but brilliant group of people who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information, and refuse to rest until justice has been served … sort of. These dedicated men and women are more than counter-intuitive; they are non-intuitive.”
The pilot order follows Carousel Television’s unscripted comedy pilot with Fox, “Slide Show.”
“Tribeca” joins TBS’s other pilot, “Do It Yourself,” the untitled multi-camera comedy written by Josh Heald from Conan O’Brien‘s production studio, Conaco.
An actress and writer, Nancy’s credits include NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” “The Goode Family” and “The Office.”
