NBC is assembling a comedy dream team for its latest show, Good Place. Kristen Bell and Ted Danson will star in the new comedy from Parks and Recreation's Mike Schur. But what about their current shows, House of Lies and CSI: Cyber?

That's a very good question.

In Good Place, Bell plays Eleanor, a New Jersey woman who realizes she hasn't been a good person, so she decides to turn over a new leaf "by learning what it actually means to be ‘good' or ‘bad,' and then trying to make up for her past behavior," NBC said in a release. Danson will play Michael. His character, through unlikely circumstances, becomes Eleanor's guide through her self-improvement.

Danson is currently starring in CSI: Cyber, the last remaining CSI series on CBS. He transferred from the mothership CSI when that series ended earlier in 2015. Should CSI: Cyber return (it's being bounced around the schedule and then benched), CBS boss Glenn Geller told reporters Danson would not return. His other credits include Fargo, Cheers, Bored to Death, Damages, Becker and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Bell currently stars opposite Don Cheadle in Showtime's House of Lies, now in its fifth season. A rep for Showtime confirmed as part of Bell's deal she can do both shows should House of Lies get a season six. Her other TV credits include Veronica Mars, Party Down, Gossip Girl and Parks and Recreation.

Good Place season one will be 13 episodes.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversl family.)
