Eternal Favs Amy Poehler & Nick Offerman To Host ‘Masterchef’ But For Craft


Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman have signed on to co-host a reality TV show focused entirely on craft, because the world is in dire need of that trademark Parks and Recreation warmth and optimism.

The tentatively-titled The Handmade Project bills itself as Masterchef, but for making basically anything that isn’t food. Each episode will challenge eight craftspeople from a variety of disciplines to complete a project, which will be judged by a panel of experts – and your two favs, obviously. 

While Poehler has about as much experience with throwin’ cool stuff together as she does operating a local government department, Offerman is actually an esteemed woodworker. If you’d like to catch a moustache-less Nick discuss the intricacies of canoe making, that’s your prerogative:

In typically perf fashion, Poehler said “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.”

Offerman reckoned he’s “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.”

There’s no airing date set for this beautiful show, but if you feel like moving to The States and chucking in an application, you can do so riiight here.
