Rashida Jones Developing New Drama Series After Leaving 'Parks & Rec'

Rashida Jones will leave her role as Ann Perkins on NBC's ever popular Parks & Recreation at the halfway point in the upcoming sixth season, but rather than go straight to the unemployment office and apply for benefits, Rashida already has her next job lined up. Rashida is teaming up with her sister, Kidada Jones, to develop the new comedy-drama series The Revengers for The CW; an hour-long, New York-set revenge-based sitcom.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, who first broke the story, Rashida is working with her Celeste & Jesse Forever collaborator Will McCormack, Up In The Air producer Daniel Dubiecki, Lara Alameddine and Prep School Confidential author Kara Taylor to serve as the show's executive producers, with Taylor also penning the first script for the show. Kidada will produce the show, a first for the model/fashion designer. Rashida and McCormack will also work together for the upcoming Fox comedy series Stuck.

The upcoming CW project will center on two estranged, twentysomething friends looking for love in New York who reunite after learning that they've both been dating the same guy. The two plan to humiliate the cheater, but when their plans go viral they soon discover that there's money to be made in the revenge business and they continue to help others who have been wronged. No word yet on when the show will air.

Meanwhile, Jones will leave Parks & Rec. after the first 13 episodes of the sixth season along with Rob Lowe, whose departure is literally the worst thing to happen to the show since the series first began. The sixth season of Parks & Rec. will air on Thursday, September 26.
