The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Carell and his wife Nancy Carell are writing and executive producing a new pilot called “Tribeca.” The single-camera comedy is described as a “satirical look at a police procedural.”
“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,” THR writes. “These dedicated men and women are more than counter-intuitive; they are non-intuitive.”
Carell is planning to direct the pilot, though it’s unclear if he’ll star in the show as well. The central character is named Angie Tribeca, who is a 10-year veteran of the Really Heinous Crimes Unit (RHCU) of the LAPD. Are you intrigued by this new project?
