HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/4/10 – “He said this is probably the dumbest thing you’ll ever read, and we hope you like it as much as we do,” says Angie Tribeca star Rashida Jones. “He was right. I like it so much. This is my favorite form of comedy. Nancy and Steve [Carell] are creators. They’re cheerleaders. They pitch jokes on set. They play characters in the read-throughs. They basically shape the show.”

Jones is the daughter of actress Peggy Lipton, the blonde Ford model who starred in the original Mod Squad, and of record producer Quincy Jones. “He’s like everybody’s dad,” says Rashida Jones. “Everybody knows him, loves him immediately. He’s 84. He’s seen and done everything. He has the best advice. The one thing that sticks with me the most is he tells me to make decisions based on love and not fear.”


In Angie Tribeca, Rashida Jones is Angie Tribeca. She travels outside of their jurisdiction to New Orleans, New York, Miami, outer space and Universal Studios Hollywood, in pursuit of an animal rights activist turned serial killer.

Hayes MacArthur is Geils, Tribeca’s partner who helps her through all her traveling.
