NBC has given a series order to romantic comedy "A to Z," from scribe Ben Queen and exec producer Rashida Jones.

Warner Bros. TV laffer stars Ben Feldman ("Mad Men") and Cristin Milioti ("How I Met Your Mother"). It revolves around a couple who meet after a technical glitch at the online dating company where Feldman's character works.

Queen wrote the pilot and exec produces with Jones and her producing partner Will McCormack.

Jones has had a busy week. On top of "A to Z," TBS gave a series order to "Angie Tribeca," the police procedural satire that Jones toplines for Steve Carell's Carousel TV banner.

NBC on Tuesday gave the greenlight to "Marry Me," another relationship-driven comedy. The Peacock has already given series orders to three other comedies ("Mr. Robinson," "Tooken" and "Taxi Brooklyn") for the coming season but it expected to add at least one or two more prior to Monday's upfront presentation in New York.
