Amy Poehler fans, set your DVRs for April 9: The former Saturday Night Live star has a new show, likely to be called Public Service, set to air at 8:30 on NBC. The new series was originally slated to debut after the Super Bowl, but Amy’s pregnancy pushed the start date back a few months.

 

Amy will play a mid-level local government official – we’re thinking a Michael Scott-esque public servant – and will be starring with The Office alum Rashida Jones, as well as Aziz Ansari

 

Although Public Service is the brainchild of Greg Daniels and Michael Schur, both of whom worked on The Office, the twosome insist it’s not a spinoff, as there’s nary a Dunder-Mifflin employee in sight.

 

Only time will tell!
