According to Deadline, Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of a half-hour comedy series created by Ansari and Parks and Rec‘s writer-producer Alan Yang. The duo will executive-produce with Schur, David Miner (Parks and Rec) and Dave Becky (Broad City).
And as if you needed more reason to be excited for the project, Ansari will star alongside H. Jon Benjamin, Lena Waithe, Eric Wareheim, Noel Wells and Kelvin Yu. Claire Danes will also guest-star along with Spectacular Now‘s James Ponsoldt.
The premise of the New York-based show hasn’t been announced, but it’s rumored to be partially based on Ansari’s life and deal with dating and relationships. But frankly, we don’t care what it’s about. Based solely on the quality of people involved in the comedy, we’re already prepared to call it one of our new favorite comedies. And who knows? Maybe they’ll find a way to get Ben Wyatt’s butt to cameo.
