Natalie Morales is set to work with a familiar face as she reunites with “Parks and Recreation” co-creator Mike Schur for the upcoming NBC comedy “Abby’s.”
The network confirmed that the actress will play the titular role of Abby in the pilot, with Schur pegged as producer.
“No nonsense, slight but strong, Abby is ex-military, a staff sergeant in the Army who did two tours of duty in Afghanistan,” says the show description. “Warmly convivial but never openly sentimental, Abby has found her calling, hosting friends and newcomers in her open-air backyard bar where locals find camaraderie and a kind of sanctuary.

Morales previously played the recurring role of as Lucy, the girlfriend of Aziz Ansari’s character Tom Haverford, who is a bartender at The Snakehole Lounge.

Obviously those listings and dwellings are all fake (though you actually can rent the “Full House” home).
Still, Airbnb and VRBO are both solid alternatives to traditional hotels. Check both websites out for plenty of cool non-TV cribs to crash in on your next vacation.
