Kristen Bell is set to star in a new comedy from Mike Schur, the co-creator of The Office and Parks & Recreation, according to Deadline. The new show, Good Place, will be 13-episodes straight-to-series and will also star Ted Danson.
Good Place centers on Eleanor (Bell), a woman from New Jersey who realizes that she hasn’t been a very good person. Eleanor reacts to this realization by trying to turn over a new leaf and learn what it means to be “good” or “bad” and then make up for her past deeds. Danson plays Michael, who ends up as Eleanor’s guide through a series of circumstances.
Bell currently stars on House of Lies on Showtime, but according to Deadline, being able to continue filming House of Lies, which is currently shooting its finale in Cuba, was a condition of Bell’s contract.
In addition to House of Lies and Good Place, Bell also starred on Veronica Mars and was the voice of Anna in Frozen. She is also set to appear in the upcoming remake of CHiPs.
