Rashida Jones is many things to many people. As Ann Perkins on Parks & Recreation, to Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope, she is a beautiful tropical fish, such a good friend and a beautiful, rule-breaking moth. To most, she is an accomplished and very funny actress who has made us laugh and warmed the cockles of our hearts on The Office, Parks & Rec and Chappelle’s Show, to name a few. She also co-wrote a movie that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year with her writing partner Will McCormack and are following said film, Celeste and Jesse Forever, with an upcoming feature called Frenemy of the State based on her comic book about a socialite-turned-CIA-operative. Did you know Rashida Jones wrote a comic book? Because she did.
But now, in addition to being part of a funny ensemble on TV, Jones and writing partner McCormack, who most recently co-wrote We Are Puppets for Showtime, signed a two-year deal with Warner Brothers to “develop, write and produce their own comedy and drama projects for cable and network TV,” says the Hollywood Reporter. Can’t wait to see what they come up with, and any news about funny, talented women getting more work on TV and playing a principal role in the creative process is pretty awesome. And now, just for you, an Ann Perkins montage party.
