Description: From Executive Producer Michael Schur (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Master of None”) comes a smart, unique new comedy about what makes a good person. The show follows Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell, “House of Lies,” “Veronica Mars”), an ordinary woman who enters the afterlife and, thanks to some kind of error, is sent to the Good Place instead of the Bad Place, which is definitely where she belongs. While hiding in plain sight from Michael (Ted Danson, “CSI,” “Cheers”), the wise architect of the Good Place (who doesn’t know he’s made a mistake), she’s determined to shed her old way of living and discover the awesome (or, at least, the pretty good) person within.

Note: NBC only ordered a total of thirteen episodes for this show’s first season but it is more expensive to produce than the typical sitcom.

Status: (Updated 1/17/17) This show improved some this past week and if it can go out on a strong note with its season finale on January 19th then perhaps NBC can see their way to give it a second season nod.
