Parks & Recreation co-star Rashida Jones and her writing partner, fellow actor-writer Will McCormack, have signed their first TV pod deal — a two-year pact with Warner Bros. Television. Under the agreement, the two will develop, write and produce comedy and drama projects for broadcast and cable.
Jones and McCormack previously wrote the Jones-starring indie romantic comedy Celeste And Jesse Forever, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and recently nabbed a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best First Screenplay. The duo is currently writing the feature Frenemy Of The State for Universal and Imagine. On the TV side, they previously wrote We Are Puppets, which was in development at Showtime. Jones is repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment and attorney James Adams; McCormack is with UTA and Loeb.
