Following the success of Grace and Frankie starring comedian juggernauts of yesteryear, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, comic legend Carol Burnett is bringing her trail-brazing brand of humor to Netflix for an Original Series. The star, who broke the glass ceiling for women in the comedy world with her 16-year run on top as the host of the Emmy-award winning Carol Burnett Show, will be the title character in the series, A Little Help with Carol Burnett. She will interview children in her latest venture.
VP of Content Acquisition for Netflix, Bela Bajaria, spoke on this monumental announcement,
“We’re thrilled Carol is bringing her unique sensibilities to 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.”
