Legendary Carol Burnett has a new unscripted comedy set for Netflix, A Little Help with Carol Burnett.
In each of the 12 half-hour episodes, both celebrities and everyday people will bring their real-life issues to a panel of straight-talking 4-8-year-olds, who will reveal how a different generation solves life’s biggest dilemmas.
“Someone once asked me how old I am inside,” said Burnett. “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, Vice President, 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 series will premiere in 2018.
Meanwhile Burnett is also set to star in an untitled multicamera comedy to be executive produced by Amy Poehler.
