NBC’s “The Good Place,” the critically beloved otherworldly comedy from executive producer and creator Michael Schur, has been renewed for a full-season order of 13 episodes.

The announcement was made by Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment.

“Mike Schur has always had one of the most fertile and imaginative minds in comedy, but what he brought us with the first season of ‘The Good Place’ was just extraordinary,” Salke said. “We absolutely can’t wait to see where these characters go, literally, in season two. A big thank you to Mike, the writers and cast for delivering a series in which we all take such enormous pride.”

With the Gilmore Girls revival behind us, it’s time to reopen our investigation into a second Veronica Mars reunion project.

Over the summer, leading lady Kristen Bell confirmed our initial scoop that she and series creator Rob Thomas are eyeing a limited-series format vs. a fan-funded feature film this time around, telling me at Comic-Con, “We are definitely striving to do it again… And this time around we’re not going to ask the audience to pony up for anything.”

At the Television Critics Association winter press tour last week, Thomas — who was promoting iZombie Season 3 — revealed that the potential continuation would consist of a half-dozen hour-long episodes. “Kristen and I both want to figure out some way we could do a six-episode Veronica Mars mystery,” he shared. “If I were a betting man, I bet that it will happen. I just don’t know when it will be.” [Source]

   

NBC’s freshman comedy is serving up a good old-fashioned battle between good and evil, as Michael fights to keep Eleanor away from Trevor and the Bad Place. Creator Michael Schur hints that the next few episodes are “about the Good Place crew trying desperately to figure out any kind of argument they can make about why Eleanor should stay before this mysterious ‘Shawn’ shows up to lay down a ruling.” (“Shawn” being the perfect name for an all-knowing demigod, of course.) Along with fighting for her eternal soul, Eleanor finds herself in the middle of what Schur calls “the weirdest love triangle of all time,” as the real Eleanor settles into the Good Place — and takes the old Eleanor’s place as Chidi’s soulmate. Plus, look for the Siri-like assistant Janet to come back online (and in service of an unexpected twist). As Schur says, “She’s re-uploading all of the knowledge of the universe, and that takes a little while.”

PARIS — Gaumont Television is partnering up with Kristen Bell (“Frozen,” “Bad Moms”) on “Do, Re & Mi,” an animated musical series featuring original songs performed by Bell (“Frozen”) and American Idol finalist Jackie Tohn, among other guests.

“Music has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I hope this show will inspire a new generation of Kids and expose them to the benefits of music, which can be incredibly inspirational, encouraging and fun all at the same time,” said Bell, who is exec producing the series with digital expert Ivan Askwith.

The series, which will comprise 52 episodes of 11 minutes, underscores Gaumont Television’s ambition to deliver high-profile, talent-driven animated series for global audiences, in line with its editorial line for drama series (“Narcos,” “Hannibal”).

“Do, Re & Me” is the first project carried on by Nicolas Atlan, who was recently appointed president of animation for Gaumont and is working out of the company’s Los Angeles office.

“What better way to jumpstart our new animation division than by joining with Kristen Bell and her creative, innovative partners Michael, Jackie and Ivan who brought Do, Re & Mi to our attention,” commented Atlan. “We believe ‘Do, Re & Mi’ will connect kids to music in a fun, new way across all screens.” [Source]
