‘The Paley Center Salutes The Good Place’ Preview
Airing one week before the final season premiere of The Good Place, NBC and The Paley Center for Media are celebrating the Kristen Bell and Ted Danson-led series with a one-hour special titled The Paley Center Salutes The Good Place. Just four seasons in, the show has been critically applauded and Emmy Award-nominated for its outstanding writing and acting (with nods for Danson and guest-star Maya Rudolph), in addition to a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. The show has also previously won the AFI Award for Program of the Year and the Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy.
The series focuses on Bell’s character Eleanor Shellstrop, an entitled, selfish woman who wakes up in the afterlife and is introduced by Michael (Danson) to “The Good Place,” a highly selective afterlife utopia he designed, as a reward for her righteous life. Shortly after her arrival, Eleanor realizes she was sent there by mistake and must hide her morally imperfect behavior while trying to become a better and more ethical person to cover her tracks.
Comprised of the show’s best moments and wit from its first three seasons, The Paley Center Salutes The Good Place will feature interviews with the show’s stars (Danson, Bell, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and D’Arcy Carden) as well as with creator Michael Schur (The Office, Parks and Recreation). The special will offer rarely seen behind-the-scenes footage that no fan should miss out on.
“As it begins its final season, The Good Place has become a cultural touchstone representing the best of television anywhere,” said Doug Vaughan, Executive Vice President, Special Programs and Late Night, NBC Entertainment. “We’re excited to partner with The Paley Center for Media to honor such an outstanding show that’s admired by so many of its devoted fans.”
“With its brilliant acting, writing and directing, it’s easy to see why The Good Place has taken its place among television’s most memorable comedies,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We’re thrilled to team up with our friends at NBC to offer fans a behind-the-scenes look at this beloved series.”
The new season of The Good Place premieres Thursday, September 26 at 9 p.m. along with the return of Superstore at 8 p.m. and new series Perfect Harmony (starring Bradley Whitford) and Sunnyside (starring Kal Penn and executive produced by Schur).
