In what seems like a dream matchup of content, creator, and service, Aziz Ansari will be toplining a comedy series for Netflix according to Deadline. Aziz Ansari has been a rising star for years and was frequently one of the best parts about the recently ended Parks and Recreation. So, it’s very exciting to hear that Ansari will once again be working with the same writers on this new show.
This is also seems like a fantastic fit because of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the other big live-action sitcom series that Netflix premiered earlier this year. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was created for NBC, the same network that Parks and Rec was on, and created by Tina Fey, who of course is good friends with Amy Poehler. I guess what I’m trying to say is, the people involved in these two shows are very much in the same circles, and the two shows could make for very prime companion shows (granted that that concept is relatively meaningless on a platform like Netflix), and if this Ansari show is anything close to the quality of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, I’m excited.
