"Parks and Recreation" co-creator and showrunner Mike Schur is totally copping out with his next project.
Fox has purchased a pilot from Schur and "Parks and Rec" writer Dan Goor.
The comedy, about a diverse group of police detectives in New York City, has received a put-pilot commitment, meaning the network is subject to financial penalties if it doesn't air the project.
The as-yet-untitled project comes from Universal Television and 3 Arts Entertainment.
News of the sale comes on the same day that Schur renewed his overall deal with Universal Television with a new, two-year pact, which will see him developing new projects while continuing to head the NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation."
