Rashida Jones Is The Lead in TBS's New Show Angie Tribeca


Posted on

Preposterously wacky police sitcom airs Jan. 17th   Ann Perkins finally sheds her usual second-fiddle position and heads towards center stage. Rashida Jones, the talented comedic actress with a knack for playing the straight man to Parks and Rec's Leslie Knope, will play the lead in the new comedy Angie Tribeca. You might also remember her as Karen Filippelli from the U.S. version of The Office. Not surprising, Steve Carell of Michael Scott fame is co-creating the show with his wife, Nancy (who also guest-starred on The Office). It's a modern take on the wacky comedy tropes that made movies like The Naked Spy and Airplane! so hilarious, ridiculous, and classic. Jones will play the eponymous character Angie Tribeca airing on TBS as a 25-hour marathon of the entire first season beginning Jan.17. It's literally going to make Chris Traeger tune in (not literally, but yeah). Jones sat down with Vogue for an interview on the upcoming show. Watch it out here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOTCd3vfOnI
