A few days after The Voice, NBC announced that it would pick its next star: Kristen Bell, who will take over the lead role in the new CBS show, The Mindy Project.
Bell has starred in the past three shows, most recently in The Mentalist and The Mental Health Foundation.
The news comes as Bell is also set to star in a new CBS comedy series, The New Normal.
The show, which will be directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino, was written and produced by Bell and produced under her current deal with CBS.
“We are excited to be joining the CBS family of shows and it will be a huge honor to be the next one to take on The Minds and The New Normies,” Bell said in a statement.
The Mindies is a comedy series about two friends in the fictional town of Woodside, New Jersey, who end up as part of a cult, where the show follows their struggles to be part of society.
The NewNormies is about a group of people, mostly white, who are obsessed with one another, and are drawn to each other.
Both shows have already received major critical acclaim and ratings, with The Mindys averaging 1.5 million total viewers and 1.4 million adults 18-49 and The Mindyns averaging 1 million total and 1 million adults 25-54.
The first episode of The Mindie, titled “Blessing,” aired this month on CBS.
