Rashida Jones and her Celeste & Jesse Forever writing partner Will McCormack have signed a two-year deal with Warner Bros. Television, under which the pair will develop, write and produce their own comedy and drama projects for both cable and network TV, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Celeste & Jesse Forever premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012 and was picked up and released theatrically by Sony Pictures Classics.

No samples of what the comedy and drama projects might be, but, currently, Rashida and Will are writing Frenemy of the State for Unviversal and Imagine

    Yeah, I am happy for her..... I hate when people make assumptions and judge others without knowing their struggles

    Wasn't there some story that came out a few months ago that Jones years ago actually passed for white for a while?

    I can't get behind anything RAshida of Mindy Kaling do.Its habitually them surrounded by a sea of white people which I find disappointing given that they are two women of ethnic backgrounds who have these opportunities to elevate and change the way stories are told for women and people of colour but they don't.insaw the trailer for 'jess and celeste ...'and knew I wouldn't be watching it.
