Henson, Derek Hough, DJ Khaled, Lisa Kudrow, Brittany Snow, Wanda Sykes and Stranger Things fave Finn Wolfhard. Here’s the full synopsis:
Carol Burnett is back. In this funny and endearing series, she will be joined by a group of the most honest and unfiltered people in the world – a gaggle of straight talking, entertaining 5-9 year old kids. These very opinionated “experts” weigh-in on a variety of relatable and humorous dilemmas brought in by everyday adults. Each episode will feature a celebrity contributor brave enough to bring in their own dilemma for the kids to comment on in front of a live audience. The show is co-hosted by comedian Russell Peters.
Netflix has been toying with various talk show formats for some time; most recently granting David Letterman a monthly platform to deliver new episodes. You can check out the original teaser for A Little Help With Carol Burnett below, and stay tuned for all episodes next month.
