New Yorkers have known that Parks and Recreation’s Aziz Ansari has been shooting a show of his own, thanks to those tell tale location shoot signs that have been popping up:

But now THR has got the scoop. Ansari is reteaming with Parks and Rec co-creator Mike Schur and co-executive producer Alan Yang for an untitled comedy series that’s cast includes H. Jon Benjamin (Bob’s Burgers, Archer), Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!), Noel Wells (SNL) and Kelvin Yu (writer for Bob’s Burgers).
The plot is currently underwraps, but we do know that the 10-episode premiere season will air on Netflix. With the show rumored to be based on Ansari’s life, there could be the opportunity for celebrity cameos. And with Netflix backing him, there’ll be no need to tone down Ansari’s comedy for masses. Our prediction is this will be outrageous and delicious. Count. Us. In.
