We’ve gotten a double dose of Rob Lowe this fall TV season with Moonbeam City and The Grinder and, in January, his Parks and Rec better half, Rashida Jones, will be back on TBS starring on the cop show spoof, Angie Tribeca. Jones is the title character who is a detective with the LAPD who is reluctantly partnered with J. Geils (Hayes MacArthur) to solve various crimes in Los Angeles, like a murdered ventriloquist. Jere Burns is their chief and Andree Vermeulen and Deon Cole co-star as well. Steve and Nancy Carell are executive producers on the show.
While at New York Comic Con, we got to sit down with Rashida Jones, Andree Vermeulen, executive produce Ira Ungerleider and Jere Burns to find out what the mix of procedural and humor is, more about their characters and what’s up with all the 80’s references. The show is debuting in January on TBS.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
