She is saying farewell to the hit series "Parks & Recreation" next week, but Rashida Jones won't be gone from the small screen for too long.

On Wednesday (January 22), Deadline reported the 37-year-old actress has signed on for Steve Carell's new pilot "Tribeca."

Created by Steve and his wife Nancy Carell, the single-camera comedy appears to be a cross between "Law & Order: SVU" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." Rashida will be taking on the lead role as Angie Tribeca, who is a veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department's R.H.C.U. (Really Heinous Crimes Unit).

The show is slated to hit the TBS network within the next few months. Stay linked to GossipCenter for the latest news about Rashida and "Tribeca."
