Kristen Bell, Ted Danson & Mike Schur Find ‘The Good Place’ By Bucking Convention

17 May 2016 10:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mike Schur is in a good place. Make that “The Good Place.” The prolific producer’s latest effort — a high-concept comedy starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson — last summer earned a straight-to-series pickup from NBC and now has scored a Thursday-night slot at 8:30, as announced during the network’s upfront presentation.

It’s a testament to Schur’s track record at Universal Television, where his successes include “Parks and Recreation,” “The Office,” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

But this time around, he wanted to do something different.

“It’s really intimidating when every idea you have is being done eight times over at eight different networks,” says Schur. “In my case, I had been working on ensemble office comedies pretty much continuously for 10 years.”

That theme is jettisoned with “The Good Place,” in which the only office in sight is the one in which Eleanor (Bell) wakes up to learn that she’s dead. »
