According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones, who both starred on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, will be executively producing two new comedies on NBC.
Poehler's untitled comedy, formerly known as Dumb Prince, is about a man named Karl, "who after years of partying that earned him the 'black sheep' label, returns home to compete with his brother for the family throne." Poehler will be teaming up with The Mindy Project writer Charlie Grandy to produce the comedy; the duo teamed up previously on Saturday Night Live.
Good Fortune, Jones' new comedy, revolves around "a hyper-structured young woman whose life is upended when she starts taking advice from a mysterious fortune teller," according to Variety. Jones will be teaming up with writers Craig Gerard and Matt Zinman to executively produce the comedy.
NBC also gave a pilot order to a new comedy from Tina Fey based on The Mindy Project writer Tracey Wigfield’s life about an “already inseparable mother-daughter relationship that becomes more complicated when the mom accepts an internship at her daughter’s workplace.”
