TBS has ordered three new comedies, including a police procedural satire from executive producers Steve and Nancy Carell and a workplace comedy from Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick.

Steve and Nancy Carell's Angie Tribeca (working title) stars Rashida Jones as a lone-wolf detective in the Really Heinous Crimes Unit, who isn't happy when her boss (Jere Burns) makes her work with a partner (Hayes Macarthur). Deon Cole and Andree Vermeulen also appear. The Carells will both serve as executive producers, and Nancy will guest-star in the first episode along with Lisa Kudrow, Alfred Molina, Gary Cole, and Matthew Glave. The single-camera comedy has a 10-episode order and is slated to premiere in 2015, the network announced Wednesday.

Kohan and Mutchnick's Buzzy's is a multi-camera workplace comedy about a group of former classmates who were all in different cliques in high school, but are now employed at the same Massachusetts barbershop. Ashley Tisdale, Cheers' George Wendt, and Lauren Lapkus star. Per the network, Buzzys also has a 10-episode order and is slated to premiere in 2015.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, TBS's third new comedy, titled Your Family or Mine, is about a young married couple (My Boys' Kyle Howard and 'Til Death's Kat Foster) who exemplify the adage, "When you marry someone, you don't just marry them, you marry their whole family." The show, which will alternate between episodes focused on his and her families, was adapted from an Israeli format by Ground Floor co-creator Greg Malins. Your Family or Mine has the same deal as Angie Tribeca and Buzzy's: 10 episodes, 2015.

    TBS still has a lot to prove in the sitcom genre. So far their best moves have been buying castoffs from other networks.

    I'd rather have Ann Perkins back.
