Rashida Jones and her older sister, Kidada Joneshave landed a script order on the CW, for a project titled Ladyballs.

Part of a a 2-year deal Rashida has with Warner Bros TV, Ladyballs follows 2 twenty-something estranged friends searching for love in the Big Apple, reunited after they discover that they've both been involved with the same guy, and who realize a business opportunity and set up a secret agency that helps others who've been tricked/wronged in similar relationship situations.

So, in essence, they're akin to relationship heartbreak fixers, we could say. Thank you Olivia Pope. Nyuck... nyuck.. nyuck...

Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (whom she partnered with on Celeste & Jesse Forever), will co-executive produce the potential series, with Daniel Dubiecki of Allegiance Theater.

Kara Taylor (author of Prep School Confidential) will write the script and also co-executive produce.

Meanwhile, sister Kidada Jones will produce, her debut in as a producer.

This is the second sale for Rashida Jones and Will McCormack this season, with a comedy titled Stuck already set up at Fox.

    Lol at Michelletoo. But I feel you though. For me the jury is still out on Rashida Jones.

    Two White girls are producing a pilot. Wow! Now that's news!

    Gee wiz! What's with all this negativity! One day she'll star in a movie with a brotha. One day....

    No Mia. Anyone can't see that. Or else they wouldn't be getting that deal and Rashida Jones would not be enjoying the career she enjoys. I would love to explain to you why but in every way that matters, in Hollywood, Rashida Jones is a White woman. If she were seen as White and Black, she would have a far different career.

    they aren't white... they're white and black... anyone can see that....

    YAY TO RASHIDA! I love her on Parks and Rec, and have been rooting for her venture to producing her own material. That's how you stay relevant and active in the industry. Celeste and Jesse Forever was good for a first effort, and her and Will together seem like a great team. I wish her the best.
