Amazon comedy Good People lands Lisa Kudrow to star
Lisa Kudrow has joined the cast of the upcoming Amazon sitcom Good People. Deadline reports that Kudrow will play Lynn Steele, the university ombudsman, a frustrated, outspoken individual who finds herself being seen as out of touch by millennials, even though she has been a champion of women her entire career.
Written by Whitney Cummings (The Roseanne revival) and Lee Daniels (Empire), Good People revolves around three generations of women working in the office of a college that navigates the current cultural climate, the concept of feminism across different generations, and the struggle to reconcile socially constructed ideas with current ethical views regarding complex issues such as sex, race, class, and gender.
Kudrow will server as executive producer alongside Cummings and Daniels, who will also direct the series.
Kudrow recently appeared in the romantic comedy Long Shot alongside Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen, and can be seen in the upcoming comedy Booksmart, which opens in theaters May 24.
