Amy Poehler has a new HBO show that will center around the town of Edison, New Jersey.

According to, the new show will be a “dark musical” starring John Roberts (voice of Linda Belcher from Fox’s “Bob’s Burgers.”)

The show, “Edison”, according to the site, is described as a comedy and is based on Roberts’ former life in the Middlesex County town as he tries to become a New York City real estate broker.

Poehler will executive produce the site, according to Vulture, and “Bob’s Burgers” actor H. Jon Benjamin will co-write the show with Roberts.
