Rashida Jones and Will McCormack‘s recently launched production company is making a big entrance with a put pilot commitment at Fox. The network has bought Stuck, a single-camera comedy that teams Parks & Recreation co-star Jones and co-executive producer Alexandra Rushfield. The project is produced by Jones and McCormack’s Le Train Train in association with Warner Bros. Television where the company inked a pod deal in January. Penned by Rushfield, Stuck centers on a “stuck in a rut” middle-aged woman who works at a bank and gets her “stuck in childhood” daughter a job there. Within a day, the daughter is the mother’s boss. While working and living together, they help each other to get “unstuck.” Jones, who has no plans to star, executive produces with McCormack and Rushfield. Jones is an original cast member on NBC’s Parks & Recreations, which she is set to depart after the first 13 episodes this season. Le Train Train recently hired Jeff Grosvenor as head of development.
