Aziz Ansari Inks Deal with Penguin Press

Parks & Recreation star and comedian Aziz Ansari has landed a deal with Penguin Press to write his first book about modern day romance.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ansari (pictured, via) has earned a $3.5 million advance. The publisher has set a tentative release date for September 2015.

The New York Times reports that Ansari’s book will focus on the current “era for singles, in which the basic issues facing a single person- whom we meet, how we meet them, and what happens next – have been radically altered by new technologies.” He plans to work with “noted academics” on this project.
