"The Handmade Project" (TV sho) is a reality competition series on NBC that celebrates artisanship and the makers who can create amazing things with their hands ... and a few tools too.

The series will reunite "Parks and Recreation" stars Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. Poehler and Offerman both share a love and passion of craftsmanship, albeit from different perspectives.

Poehler is a self-proclaimed crafting novice who has long harbored a secret appreciation for those who can imagine and execute incredible things by hand. Offerman is a New York Times best-selling author in the woodworking space, owner of Offerman Woodshop in Los Angeles and is well known for his love for making a variety of objects with his own two hands

Each week eight of America's best all-around makers, from all walks of life, will undertake a series of projects they must complete in their own unique way with the hopes of impressing Poehler, Offerman and expert judges. Over the course of each episode, the contestants must tackle a different theme, hand-making items in different disciplines — the difficulty of which increase as the competition unfolds. Shot in a serene outdoor setting, this friendly competition will ultimately crown a winner at the end of the season, but the series will focus on the characters and camaraderie of those who enjoy creating their own crafts, all under the comedic guidance of Poehler and Offerman.

Participants of all ages — many of whom are eager to share their craft making skills on social media — will be featured on the series with skill sets as wide-ranging as woodwork, quilting, knitting, scrapbooking, cake decorating, metal work, doll making and general crafting. Artisans and makers of any type or any creative person who loves making things by hand are welcome.



"The Handmade Project" is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio and Paper Kite Productions. Executive producers include Amy Poehler, Paper Kite's Brooke Posch, Nicolle Yaron, Nick Offerman, 3 Arts' Dave Becky and Anthony Dominici.
