Carol Burnett is a true comedy legend.
Earlier in the year the funny woman was very close to making her return to tv on comedy pilot Household Name with Amy Poehler. Now we can confirm that it is happening for definite now.
A Little Help with Carol Burnett is an original unscripted comedy. It will involve Burnett interacting with a panel of 4 to 8-year-olds where they will compare the differences in their generations. The kids will be challenged with real-life issues by celebrities and others. The kids will then have to give advice on how to tackle these issues in front of a live audience.
“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, VP, 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.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to be working on our first series with Netflix, and to be working with a comedy legend like Carol Burnett is truly a dream come true,” said Mark Bracco, EVP, Programming & Development for dick clark productions.A Little Help with Carol Burnett is produced for Netflix by dick clark productions.
Her multi-camera comedy pilot with Poehler has been left alive for potential redevelopment.
