Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman Craft New NBC Reality Competition

Amy Poehler Nick Offerman NBC Craft Competition

As if you hadn’t enough trouble keeping The Handmaiden and The Handmaid’s Tale separate, Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman are adding a new wrinkle. The Parks and Recreation pair will host The Handmade Project, a new NBC reality competition for craft-making.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Poehler and Offerman will return to their NBC roots for the six-episode reality competition, which itself will measure “artisanship and the makers who can create amazing things with their hands.” Eight makers will compete to build crafts for the hosts and a panel of judges, while Poehler herself said of the project:

I’m thrilled to be celebrating artists who make things by hand, and I’m looking forward to finally conquering my fear of paper mache.

Added Offerman:

People who make things are my favorite kind of folk. Practical, clever and terrific in a pinch. That makes me tickled pink to have a front-row seat at this prodigious display of talent, and admiring and cheering on an amazing crop of American makers. Plus, Amy and I have a strong tradition of tomfoolery, so let’s see if we don’t have some good fun.

The series arrives as part of Poehler’s overall deal with Universal Television Alternative Studio, though no premiere has yet been determined. Stay tuned for the latest in the meantime.
