Andy Samberg pilot from 'Parks and Rec' producers officially ordered by FOX
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."
