The untitled comedy, which just earned a straight-to-series order from the Peacock network, stars Danson as "a wealthy businessman who runs for mayor of Los Angeles for all the wrong reasons", per the official description. He'll be doing all of this while also trying to connect with his teenage daughter and - now this is very important - attempting to control the coyote population.

NBC is bringing together two of its biggest stars in Ted Danson and Tina Fey for a new comedy.

Fey will write and produce alongside Robert Carlock.

We don't know about you, but a series that combines the comedy powers of Danson, Fey, and Carlock sounds like a gift straight from heaven.

E!, NBC, and Universal Television are all part of the NBC Universal family. Eric Gurian will oversee the project for Little Stranger. Danson is now in production on the final season of The Good Place, so we'll likely have to wait a bit to see this mysterious new show, but you better believe it's already on our must list for whenever it finally debuts. His other stellar performance on the network was as Boston bartender Sam Malone on "Cheers". They also co-created Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which wrapped up earlier this year, with a interactive movie special on the way.
