Andy Samberg pilot from 'Parks and Rec' producers officially ordered by FOXAdd to Favorites | Parks and Recreation
It was just last May that Samberg left "Saturday Night Live." Now he's set to star in and also produce the single camera comedy following a "diverse group of detectives in a precinct at the very edge of New York City," per Deadline. Samberg will play the lead detective, a role which Schur and Goor created specifically for the comic actor.
Since leaving "SNL," Samberg has co-starred in two films with Adam Sandler -- the live action comedy flop "That's My Boy" and the animated hit "Hotel Transylvania" -- as well as the six episode BBC Three sitcom "Cuckoo." He also appeared opposite "Parks" star Rashida Jones in the indie dramedy "Celeste & Jesse Forever."
