From executive producers and hosts Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman comes a creative and lighthearted competition series that celebrates creativity and craftiness. You may recognize the comic duo from TV’s Parks and Recreation (2009-2015), but now they are back on NBC for a six-episode competition series titled Making It that brings together talented artists and “makers” from across the nation. Poehler and Offerman share an affinity for craftsmanship — albeit from two completely different viewpoints — but both demonstrate their love for the art of craft on Making It. Each episode features two main projects in which competitors flaunt their talent and skills — the “faster craft” speed round and the “master craft” challenge. These will test the participants’ ability to work under pressure and creatively adapt to each week’s theme. Poehler and Offerman will also be joined by expert judges Simon Doonan and Dayna Isom Johnson. Making It premieres July 31. nbc.com
