TBS Greenlights Police Comedy Pilot from Steve and Nancy Carell

Deadline reports that TBS has ordered a police procedural spoof pilot from Steve Carell and his wife Nancy. The half-hour pilot, to be titled 'Tribeca', will be written by the couple and directed by The Office star.

Described as "a satirical look at a police procedural anchored by Angie Tribeca, a ten-year veteran of the LAPD'S elite RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit). This 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. These dedicated men and women are more than counter-intuitive; they are non-intuitive."

Carell is best known for his role of Michael Scott on the American version of The Office. He has also starred in lead roles in the films The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Little Miss Sunshine, Evan Almighty, Dan in Real Life, Get Smart, Date Night, Dinner for Schmucks, Crazy, Stupid, Love., Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and The Way, Way Back, and voiced characters in the animated films Over the Hedge, Horton Hears a Who!, and Despicable Me.

Carell was nominated as "America's funniest man" in Life magazine, and received a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Comedy Series for playing the lead role of Michael Scott for The Office in 2006.
