After much wooing from Steve Carrell, Jones will headline "Tribeca," the single-camera TBS comedy created by the "Office" star and his wife Nancy Carrell. As "a satirical look at a police procedural," "Tribeca" looks like a significant departure from Jones' usual "nice, pretty girlfriend" image.

When Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones announced last year that she'd be leaving America's most civic-minded sitcom, she had her choice of projects to choose from. 

Deadline reports that, after much wooing from Steve Carrell, Jones will headline Tribecathe single-camera TBS comedy created by the Office star and his wife Nancy Carrell. As "a satirical look at a police procedural," Tribeca looks like a significant departure from Jones' usual "nice, pretty girlfriend" image. She'll play "an outspoken 10-year veteran of the LAPD's elite RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit).... A lone wolf, Angie [Jones] is not thrilled when told she has to work with a partner." 

We'll have to wait until the show airs to see if Jones can pull off her reinvention as a cop. Jones' (and Rob Lowe's) last episode on Parks and Rec will air on January 30th.
