Kristen Bell and Ted Danson Are Teaming for an NBC Comedy from ‘Parks and Rec’’s Co-Creator
According to TV Line, they’ll star in Mike Schur’s Good Place, a straight-to-series NBC comedy in which Bell plays a person who “hasn’t been a very good person” who’s mission is to learn how to be good. Danson will play her guide as she strives for self-improvement. Because both Bell and Danson already star on other TV shows, they’ll have to make adjustments. Bell would have to juggle the role if House of Lies continues, while Danson would have to leave CSI: Cyber. UPDATE: Danson won’t return to CSI: Cyber.
