That’s probably because American Vandal, a new Netflix series announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, isn’t your typical true-crime doc. In fact, there’s (spoiler alert!) nothing “true” about it.

Carol Burnett to Star in Unscripted Netflix Comedy

Carol BurnettNetflix

Carol Burnett is teaming up with Netflix — and kids. The streaming giant has given a 12-episode series order to “A Little Help with Carol Burnett,” an unscripted, half-hour comedy that will follow the TV icon “and a panel of straight-talking 4–8-year-olds as they demonstrate how different generations solve life’s biggest dilemmas,” Deadline reports.

Scheduled for a 2018 premiere, “A Little Help with Carol Burnett” will follow the kids as they react to “real-life issues brought before them by both celebrities and everyday people and … dish back guidance in front of a live studio audience.”

Burnett joked, “Someone once asked me how old I am inside, I thought about it, and came up with, ‘I’m about eight.’ So it’s going to be a lot of fun playing with kids my age.”

“We’re thrilled Carol is bringing her unique sensibilities to Netflix,” said Bela Bajaria, VP, Content Acquisition for Netflix. “Carol is truly a legend in the entertainment industry with unprecedented success and fandom across TV, film, and the stage, and we are both honored and excited to work with her.”

The Carol Burnett Show” ran from 1967 to 1978 on CBS and made Burnett a household name.

Burnett has six Emmy Awards from a whopping 22 nominations. An inductee to the Television Hall of Fame, she has a Peabody Award, five Golden Globe Awards, Crystal and Lucy Awards from Women in Film, and many other trophies to her name. In 2013 Burnett received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, one of the highest honors for a comedian.

In January of last year, Amy Poehler and her frequent collaborator Tina Fey presented Burnett with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the SAG Awards.

“We watched Carol with our moms, and our moms taught us 90 percent of what we needed to know to be the kind of women that we are today, and the other 10 percent is Carol,” Poehler said during the ceremony. “We love her and we thank her.”

Check out Netflix’s series announcement for “A Little Help with Carol Burnett” below. The spot centers around a meeting between Burnett and an — unusually young and adorable — Netflix employee who demands that she download Instagram and communicate via text messages rather than phone calls.

Exclusive: What ‘Glow’ Taught Betty Gilpin About Being a Strong Woman

19 July 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

For an actress who has made a career out of acclaimed off-Broadway plays and parts on prestige TV shows such as Nurse Jackie, Masters of Sex and, more recently, American Gods, Starz’s stylized adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s cult novel, it comes as a surprise to see Betty Gilpin rocking spandex, glittery eye shadow and at least half a can of Aqua Net on Netflix’s female wrestling dramedy Glow. In person, however, the self-described “theater geek” is decidedly less glamorous. “I have toothpaste on my face right now,” deadpans Gilpin, speaking to Et by phone from her Brooklyn apartment.

Last year was perhaps the busiest of Gilpin’s life, considering that she not only landed parts on two of the most talked-about new TV series, she also got married to Cosmo Pfeil, a former actor who now works at a nonprofit. (Ironically, the couple met while playing siblings in the 2009 movie The Northern Kingdom.) “While »

Networks Bypass ‘Big Bang’-Style Comedies for Fall

15 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Heading into last month’s broadcast upfronts, multi-camera comedies appeared primed for a renaissance on broadcast. NBC was actively looking for a new series to pair with its forthcoming “Will & Grace” revival. ABC, which was already home to a Friday-night block of multi-cameras, was in the mix for a “Roseanne” revival miniseries, and was pondering a new show starring Carol Burnett. CBS was primed to order several shows as it sought to find a successor to ratings champ “The Big Bang Theory.”

But post-upfronts, only CBS now appears to be a safe place for multi-cameras. NBC found no new show to pair with “Will & Grace,” and instead nestled the limited-run revival at 9 p.m. Thursdays, where it will be surrounded by returning single-camera comedies. ABC successfully outbid Netflix for “Roseanne,” which will air after midseason, but then canceled its Friday-night multi-cams “Dr. Ken” and “Last Man Standing” to clear the way for a night of speculative-fiction dramas »
