Making It - Crafts Competition Reality Series Hosted By Amy Poehler & Nick Offerman

Amy Poehler and her Paper Kite Productions are making a foray into unscripted TV with The Handmade Project, a competition reality show which has received a six-episode straight-to-series order by NBC. Poehler is reuniting with her former Parks and Recreation co-star Nick Offerman on the show, which celebrates artisanship and the makers who can create amazing things with their hands … and a few tools too.

Each week eight all-around makers, from all walks of life, will take on a series of projects with the hopes of impressing Poehler, Offerman and our 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 increases with every episode until a winner is crown. Shot in an outdoor setting, the series will also focus on the characters and camaraderie of those who enjoy creating their own crafts, all under the comedic guidance of Poehler and Offerman.

I'll be there at day one for this. Right up my alley. I watched Ellen's reality furniture design show a few years ago because the building stuff interested me.

I'd watch just for Amy Poehler's commentary, but the show itself also sounds interesting!

I'm not worthy of even being in the same state as Offerman.

Neither am I... but you aren't competing against Offerman. You would be ther to hopefully learn from him, which would be extrely valuable.

I'll be adding this as a show to watch on leave. I loved Parks and Rec so seeing these two together again and the concept itself both sound promising!

Just watched the first ep. Super cute show and amazing what these people can do. Amy and Nick have great banter and corny jokes that just make you giggle and feel good. I'm definitely sold.

I read some criticism that they didn't show off the finished projects long enough. You didn't get a good sense of what they made.

Do you agree with that?

Hmm I think they spent enough time showing off the finished product... I don't know what people would expect with a TV show. They aren't going to spend 5 min with everyone's pieces in detail. They do 2 different challenges so it is a lot they get through in 40ish minutes each episode.
