Oh the places you’ll can go when you are a talented comedy writer with Amy Poehler’s seal of approval! Former Parks and Recreation staff writer and current series producer Aisha Muharrar is creating a new comedy project for NBC. Oh, and this untitled series has a pretty cool producer — maybe you’ve heard of him? He’s this relatively unknown actor, super indie, underground, does Godard-type films: Ed Helms? Oh, you know him!?
According to Deadline, the series is about a gifted teenage girl who dreams of becoming the next Oprah and uses her friends and family as reluctant case studies in order to gain experience. Helms is executive producing through his newly launched company, Pacific Electric Picture Co.
