Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones are reuniting on NBC — or, rather, the two former Parks and Recreation actresses are both producing pilots for NBC, which is pretty cool, but several degrees of magnitude less cool than having them do a show together, like handing someone a popsicle after they complain that the polar ice caps are melting. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Poehler's comedy comes from The Mindy Project's Charlie Grandy and it follows a party-boy son who comes back to his family's home. Jones, on the other hand, is producing a multicam comedy called Good Fortune about a woman who starts taking advice from a fortune teller. Jones previously produced A to Z for NBC, which starred Ben Feldman and Cristin Milioti and was much better than you remember. In a further NBC reunion-ish news, the network has already picked up former Parks and Rec showrunner Mike Schur's comedy with Ted Danson and Kristen Bell. May all the post–Parks and Rec projects prosper.
