US entertainment media reports that the “Parks and Recreation” star will executive produce “Tails,” a comedy show in development at Fox, via her Paper Kite company. She is joined on the production team by Monica Padrick (“Community”) and the actress, Riki Lindhome.
“Tails” follows the life of Erika, played by Riki Lindhome, a woman in her late 30s who refuses to settle in any area of her life, despite the pressure she feels from the world around her.
Best known for her role as Ramona Nowitzki in the CBS show “The Big Bang Theory,” Riki Lindhome partnered with Kate Micucci — who also featured in the series created by Chuch Lorre — as one half of the “Garfunkel and Oates” musical comedy duo.
Monica Padrick’s current projects include penning the screenplay for “Central Park,” a forthcoming animated series for Apple from the “Bob’s Burgers” creator, Loren Bouchard.
The American actress and producer, Amy Poehler, will make her directorial debut with the movie “Wine Country,” a comedy coming soon to Netflix, in which she also stars alongside Maya Rudolph (“Forever”). She is scheduled to return with the second season of the NBC competition series, “Making It,” which she produces and co-hosts with former “Parks and Recreation” co-star, Nick Offerman.
