Created by Nancy Carell and Steve Carell (40-Year-Old Virgin), and starring Rashida Jones (PARKS AND RECREATION) as lone-wolf LAPD Detective Angie Tribeca, ANGIE TRIBECA follows a squad of LAPD detectives who investigate the most serious cases - from the murder of a ventriloquist to a rash of baker suicides.

The 10-episode, half-hour comedy trails 10-year veteran detective Angie Tribeca (Jones) who’s paired with an unwanted partner, J Geils (Hayes MacArthur, Life As We Know It). The series also stars Jere Burns (JUSTIFIED) as Lt. Chet Atkins, Angie’s unconventional boss; Deon Cole (BLACK-ISH) as DJ Tanner, a detective who works in the K-9 unit, and Andre?e  Vermeulen (NEW GIRL) as Dr. Monica Scholls, the quirky medical examiner. Guest stars this season include Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Lisa Kudrow (FRIENDS), and Adam Scott (PARKS AND RECREATION). In the series premiere of ANGIE TRIBECA (Tuesday, March 1 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT), the mayor is being blackmailed and the lieutenant is just sick about it. Angie Tribeca is assigned a new partner, J Geils (MacArthur), to find the blackmailer and bring him to justice. The only problem is that Tribeca (Jones) works alone.
