Fact: Amy Poehler is a comedy queen. Not only is she a former Saturday Night Live fave and a hilarious Emmy loser, but her series Parks and Rec - which she produced, wrote and starred on, NBD - made us wish that Leslie Knope was running our town and our fictional BFF. So, obviously, it's only good news that, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Amy is getting another comedy series on NBC - even though there is a catch.

I'm majorly stoked about Amy returning to TV, but while her presence will be felt, it might not be seen. The series, which has a pilot production deal at NBC right now, is called Dumb Prince and is about a royal who isn't sure he's the right fit to run his kingdom. Amy is producing it, but so far there's no word on whether she'll be the show's female lead or even on it at all. Sigh.
I'll happily check out absolutely anything that Amy does ever, but I'm a little bummed that the comedy queen isn't already slotted to play a princess or some other royal on Dumb Prince. Who better to co-star on a Poehler production than Amy herself? Fingers crossed that should Dumb Prince get a full season order, Amy makes major waves in the guest star department - I need this face back on TV, stat.
