The Hollywood Reporter said Whitford's latest project is a single-camera pilot for a buddy comedy series called "Off Duty."
The show casts Whitford as a once-great police detective whose career is faltering and Romany Malco as the rising star who gets stuck with him as a partner, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.
Malco has appeared in the movies "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Blades of Glory" and "Baby Mama" and the Showtime series "Weeds."
