Where is Aziz Ansari going to land after Parks & Recreation? Back on Netflix.
Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of a new comedy, starring and co-created by Ansari. There is a lot of Parks & Rec blood running through this project, per Deadline:
Ansari co-created the show, which has a 10-episode straight-to-series order, with Parks & Rec co-executive producer Alan Yang. The two executive produce with fellow Parks & Rec alums, co-creator/executive producer Michael Schur and exec producer David Miner, as well as Dave Becky. Parks & Rec studio Universal TV, where Schur and Yang are under overall deals, is producing with 3 Arts.
No word on a title or any plot details, but the new show is rumored to be loosely based on Ansari’s life.
The show does have an impressive cast, however, including Archer‘s H. Jon Benjamin, Tim & Eric’s Eric Wareheim, SNL‘s Noël Wells and Kelvin Yu, and Dear White People co-creator Lena Waithe.
Claire Danes is scheduled to make a guest appearance.
Netflix just announced another interesting comedy project – a Full House sequel called Fuller House
Aziz and Netflix have partnered before. His standup special, Aziz Ansari: Live at Madison Square Garden, debuted on the streaming platform on March 6.
