kristen-bell-parks-and-recSet your DVRs now: Kristen Bell has signed on to headline a new NBC comedy series from Parks and Recreation boss Mike Schur. Oh, and Ted Danson‘s in it too.

The TV vets will star in Good Place, NBC’s straight-to-series sitcom that centers on Bell’s character Eleanor, a New Jersey woman who comes to realize that she hasn’t been a very good person. She decides to turn over a new leaf by learning what it actually means to be “good” or “bad,” and then trying to make up for her past behavior. Danson plays Michael, who, through an unlikely set of circumstances, comes to be Eleanor’s guide through her self-designed self-improvement course.

Contractually, Good Place is not in second position to Bell’s current current role on Showtime’s House of Lies. In other words, if Lies gets renewed for a sixth season, Bell likely will juggle both series. Danson, meanwhile, would depart CSI: Cyber as a regular should it be renewed as his deal was always just for one season. Bell has a history with Schur; she recurred on Parks and Rec as Leslie’s crosstown rival Ingrid de Forest.
