Steve Carell Will Write and Direct a Comedy Pilot for TBS

Steve Carell is making a new show for TBS. The network has given a pilot order to Tribeca, a comedy police procedural co-created by the comedian and his wife Nancy Carell (née Walls), THR reports. It's a single-camera about a bunch of eccentric people working in the LAPD's RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit), centered on Angie Tribeca, a 10-year vet of the department.

In addition to writing the pilot, the Carells will also executive produce the show via Carell's production company Carousel. Steve Carell will be directing the pilot. He previously wrote and directed a few episodes of The Office and co-wrote The 40-Year-Old Virgin with Judd Apatow. TBS originally announced that they were developing the project in May.
