Amazon's Good People.

  • GOOD PEOPLE (Comedy, Single Camera) - Starring Emmy winner Lisa Kudrow (Friends) Written by Lee Daniels (Empire) and Whitney Cummings (2 Broke Girls). Directed by Daniels. Executive produced by Daniels, Cummings and Kudrow. Produced by Amazon Studios and Fox 21 Television Studios. Logline: Set in a college ombudsman's office, where three generations of women working there navigate 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 college ombudsman, a tired and mercurial force of nature. She finds herself being seen as out of touch by the younger generation, even though she's been a champion of women her entire career.
