Aziz Ansari And Michael Schur for Netflix Comedy Series
Fans of Parks and Recreation will be overjoyed to learn that comedian Aziz Ansari, who plays our favourite character Tom Haverford, has been signed on for his own Netflix comedy series.
Ansari is said to be working on the new 10-episode series with Parks and Rec/Brooklyn Nine-Nine creator Michael Schur (who just so happens to play Mose Schrute in The Office). Schur will serve as executive producer, while Parks and Recreation writer Alan Yang is also said to be involved.
Meanwhile, Jon Benjamin (Archer), Lena Waithe (Bones), Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric), Noël Wells (Saturday Night Live) and Kelvin Yu (Star Trek) will be part of the cast.
The series won’t be Ansari’s first collaboration with Netflix, as a number of his standup shows are already available to stream via the on-demand service.
We can’t wait for this next series from Ansari, Schur and Yang to fill the large, Parks and Rec. sized hole in our lives since the cult series ended earlier this year, after seven unforgettable seasons. Let’s take a moment to relive Tom Haverford’s best business ideas:
