LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former “Parks and Recreation” stars Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman are reuniting for an NBC reality competition focused on craft making.

The network says Poehler and Offerman will produce and host “The Handmade Project.” The series pits “eight of America’s best all-around makers” against one another in a series of projects over six episodes.

In addition to playing Ron Swanson on “Parks and Rec,” Offerman is well-known as an accomplished wood craftsman. He owns a custom woodworking business in Los Angeles and wrote a book about the craft last year.

NBC calls Poehler “a self-proclaimed crafting novice.” She says in a statement that she’s looking forward to finally conquering her fear of papier-mache.

NBC did not say when the show will air.
