Jason Segel will heads back to the 80s with a new comedy entitled Undercover Cop for DreamWorks.

All that is known about Undercover Cop is that the plot is loosely based on a former New Jersey cop who went undercover and found his way inside the Jersey criminal underworld in the 1980s.

Jason A. Micallef (Butter) has been hired by DreamWorks to write the screenplay. Steven Zaillian will produce the comedy through his Film Rites banner. Film Rites' Garrett Basch, who brought the concept to DreamWorks, will serve as executive producer.

No production schedule has been set for Undercover Cop.
