EXCLUSIVE: TBS‘ comedy pilot Tribeca is becoming a family affair, with Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton set to portray the parents of the series’ lead, played by Jones and Lipton’s’ real-life daughter, Rashida Jones. Also set for a guest starring/potential recurring role in the pilot is Alfred Molina, with Lisa Kudrow in talks for a cameo. Directed by Steve Carell from a script he wrote with his wife, Nancy Carell, Tribeca is a satirical look at a police procedural anchored by Angie Tribeca (Rashida Jones), a 10-year veteran of the LAPD. The single-camera comedy explores an eccentric but brilliant group of people who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information, and refuse to rest until justice has been served. Molina will play Dr. Edelweiss, a solemn and serious handwriting expert who also has a penchant for toys.
