Rashida Jones is reuniting with her former “The Office” co-star Steve Carell in a new sitcom.

Just days before she makes her final appearance on hit TV show Parks and Recreation, the actress has signed on to star in a new program called “Tribeca.”

Co-written by Carell and his actress wife Nancy, the comedy centers on Jones’ character Angie Tribeca, an outspoken veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Really Heinous Crimes Unit.

Jones and co-star Rob Lowe, who is also departing Parks and Recreation, will make their final appearances in an episode airing in the U.S. next Thursday.

The actress played Karen Filippelli in The Office from 2006 to 2011.
