    Aziz Ansari to star in Netflix comedy

    Tom Haverford may have said that the four sweetest words in the English language are “You wore me down,” but “Aziz Ansari Netflix comedy” could be pretty sweet, too.

    The Parks and Rec alum has landed another TV gig, starring in a Netflix comedy series that he co-created with Parks and Recreation writer-producer Alan Yang. The streaming service confirmed that it has ordered 10 episodes of the half-hour show, which also features H. Jon Benjamin (Bob’s Burgers, Archer),  Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) Noel Wells (SNL), Lena Waithe (Dear White People) and Kelvin Yu (Popular). There’s another key Pawnee connection: Parks co-creator Michael Schur is one of the executive producers. (UPDATE: Ansari tweeted on Wednesday that he wrote and developed the show with Schur and Yang.)

    Netflix isn’t revealing the premise of the series, which is being filmed in New York City. The Ansari-Netflix pairing makes sense, as the comedian has released two stand-up specials on the streamer, Buried Alive and Live at Madison Square Garden.

    I’m think this is the project Harris Wittles was working on right before his death. Either way, I’m looking forward to it.
