The Good Place Photos Season 1

Photos: Kristen Bell, Ted Danson Are On a Heavenly Mission in The Good Place

The Good Place‘s Eleanor Shellstrop? She’s… the opposite of a marshmallow.

Not that you can tell that from these just-released photos from the upcoming NBC series. But when Eleanor (played by Veronica MarsKristen Bell) has a brush with the afterlife, she realizes she hasn’t been a very good person. So she works to fix that, aided by an “afterlife mentor” played by Cheers‘ Ted Danson.

The straight-to-series comedy is from Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation). The cast also includes William Jackson Harper (The Electric Company), Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto (The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story  and D’Arcy Carden (Broad City).

    That’s pretty awesome news!

  2. Taylor says:

    I don’t know if I’m happy with this switch. Sean Harris seemed perfect (sad he had to leave) and this is an entirely different direction.

  3. Ethel says:

    If he had not played a perfect sleazy character on L&O:SVU, I would have loved to have seen him as a regular on the show.

      I think you both are commenting on a different article. This will be one i will have to watch since I love Ted Danson and Kristin Bell.

  4. Lucky says:

    Kristen Bell is one of my faves. I’ve adored her since Veronica Mars. I’ll definitely be watching this series.

  5. Erin B says:

    Michael Schur has never disappointed me in the past so I’ll check it out, but I can’t stand Kristen Bell. I think I would prefer almost anyone over her.

    What does this mean for “House of Lies,” which I would hate to see go, and “CSI: Cyber,” which I was compelled to hate-watch…?

    • johnhelvete says:

      Danson had a one year deal for Cyber, pretty sure he is not coming back for another season if there is a renewal. When the deal for the series was announced, the articles stated that Bell could do both series, though I dont think Lies has been renewed for season 6 yet.

  7. Megan says:

    Mike Schur and Kristen Bell! Two of my TV faves!

  8. Robin says:

    Will this be premiering any time soon? Summer show?

  9. Lauren says:

    Premise is a little meh but I will follow Michael Schur anywhere. And I’m constantly surprised by how much I enjoy Ted Dansen in whatever he does.

  10. John NYC says:

    Not that sure about the premise but both Bell and Danson are favorites of mine so I’ll sample it and see.

  11. redjane12 says:

    Love Kristen Bell and Ted Danson so this is definitely in my watch list…

  12. Joey Padron says:

    Photos of the show look pretty good. I’l check out the show since I’m a fan of Michael Schur’s work and I like Ted and Kristen as actors.

    Straight to series order. I’m guessing it has something to with the drawing power of Danson, and especially Bell. Anyone know how many episodes have been ordered, and if it’s schedule for the fall?
