Lisa Kudrow to Star in “Good People”

Lisa Kudrow is set to star and executive produce Amazon’s Good People. 

The series from Lee Daniels (Empire) and Whitney Cummings (2 Broke Girls) centers on three generations of women working in the Ombudsman’s 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 play Lynn Steele, the university ombudsman. She is described as a tired, mercurial force of nature who finds herself being seen as out of touch by millennials, even though she has been a champion of women her entire career.

Daniels and Cummings wrote the pilot and will executive produce with Kudrow. It is produced by Amazon Studios and Fox 21 Television Studios.
