It’s not quite Philly Justice, but Ken Tremendous will be behind a police comedy, this one starring Andy Samberg.

Fox has handed its first pilot order this season to a cop comedy starring Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg. Written by the Parks and Recreation duo of co-creator/exec producer/showrunner Mike Schur and exec producer Dan Goor, the project is about a diverse group of detectives in a precinct at the very edge of New York City, with Samberg playing the lead detective.

Despite the epic failure of That’s My Boy and that stupid Windows Phone 8 commercial with his stupid feet, Samberg is still a hot commodity, and the as-yet-untitled project will be his highest non-SNL exposure TV gig yet, Shark Week host notwithstanding. As for Schur, well, we’d watch/listen/read/absorb anything with his name on it, and his reaction to Fox inevitably billing the show with the motto “Chuck(le at) the Police” is going to be amazing.
