Firstly, I have no idea how this trailer for Kristen Bell’s new upcoming comedy series The Good Place passed me by last month, but luckily though a friend pointed it out to me over the weekend. Secondly, I am not a good person. There are very few things in life that get me to laugh as hard as watching people fall down comically. I’m that guy that does the point-and-laugh when you accidentally walk into a closed glass door, and I’ve called Nick enough mean names that it’s amazing he still calls me master (Ah, he’s such a faithful little house elf).
In other words, I probably have a long standing reservation down to You-Know-Where once I shuffle from this mortal coil. But what if somebody got it all wrong and accidentally booked me a ticket on the ride up and not down? That’s what happens to Kristen Bell’s hilariously mean-spirited… well, spirit, in The Good Place, allowing heavenly hilarity to ensue!
Check out the trailer below!
That actually looks quite funny! My only concern is that the premise seems like it would be better suited to a movie than a TV series, and it will be interesting to see how they can keep it up over a season. NBC appears to have faith (yuk yuk) though and has ordered a 13-episode first season of the show which is to debut on September 19.
The Good Place was created by Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Mike Schur – who also worked extensively on Saturday Night Live, The Office and Parks & Rec – and also stars Ted Danson, Jameela Jamil and William Jackson Harper.
