Written by Daniels and Cummings, Good People revolves around 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.
The Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning Kinnear will play Dr. Paul Keating, the incredibly charismatic and charming philosophy professor at Sacramento University. He’s Indiana Jones-meets-Joan Didion. He causes problems for Lynn Steele (Kudrow) and Hazel Miller (Cummings) because of his unorthodox methods of teaching and refusal to acquiesce to “PC” rules.
Kudrow, Cummings and Daniels executive produce.
