By Nellie Andreeva, Denise Petski


Freeform has put into development National Parker, a half-hour comedy from Splitting Up Together starJenna Fischer, actress-writer Alexandra Henrikson (Maniac) and Warner Horizon Scripted Television.

Written by Henrikson, in National Parker, when social media–obsessed Parker Adams’ world comes crashing down after a breakup, she decides to put her New York City life behind her and become an adult with a real job — as a national park ranger at Alaska’s Hickberry National Park.

Fischer executive produces; Henrikson co-executive produces.

“When Alex and I met we became fast friends, bonding over our love of national parks, activism, and a desire to create projects for badass funny women,” said Fischer. “We also wanted to showcase the ingenuity and brilliance of the often-underestimated millennial generation. National Parker is what sprang forth. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Warner Horizon and Freeform to bring National Parker to life.”

The Office alum Fischer stars in ABC’s Splitting Up Together, currently airing its second season, which is produced by Waener Bros. TV. She previously appeared on TBS’ The Guest Book and on the big screen in The 15:17 To Paris.

Henrikson recently guest starred on Netflix’s Maniac.
