Amy Poehler Is Set To Film Another NBC Comedy

It's about a prince who doesn't want to be a prince.

Now that her seven-season "Parks and Recreation" is over, Amy Poehler wants to get back in the NBC comedy game.

The network has given Poehler the go-ahead to executive produce a pilot for a half-hour family comedy called "Dumb Prince," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The titular prince is, apparently, a reluctant leader who attempts to run his dysfunctional family's business -- whatever that is -- his way, leaving mayhem in his wake.

Charlie Grandy, a "Mindy Project" and "Office" alum, wrote the script and is to produce the pilot alongside Poehler, whom he previously worked with on Weekend Update for "Saturday Night Live."

While Poehler has a couple film projects keeping her busy -- "Balls," a basketball comedy, is set to begin production, while "Sisters," with Tina Fey, is ready for December release -- "Dumb Prince" marks the Emmy nominee's second attempt to slide back into network TV. In 2014, NBC declined to pick up Poehler's pilot for "Old Soul," starring Natasha Lyonne, about a young woman working as an aid to the elderly.

Fingers crossed!
