Broadway veteran and comedy legend Carol Burnett has announced her next television venture — a Netflix talk show called A Little Help With Carol Burnett.

Variety reports that the 30-minute comedy series will feature the comedian and other celebrities having unscripted conversations with kids from ages four to eight to get their opinions on real-life issues. Netflix has ordered 12 episodes, set to film in front of a live studio audience.

Burnett is best known for her iconic variety series The Carol Burnett Show, which ran from 1967-78. She famously originated the role of Princess Winnifred in Once Upon a Mattress on Broadway in 1959 (Tony nomination) and earned a Special Tony Award in 1969. She was last seen on Broadway in 2014 in a revival of A.R. Gurney's Love Letters.
