Short is set to portray the role of Sacramento University’s Dean Ed Brown.

Written by Whitney Cummings (The Roseanne revival) and Lee Daniels (Empire), Good People revolves around three generations of women working in the 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.

Kudrow will play Lynn Steele, the university ombudsman, a frustrated, outspoken individual who finds herself being seen as out of touch by millennials, even though she has been a champion of women her entire career.

While Kinnear has been cast as the charismatic philosophy professor Dr. Paul Keating who will causing problems for ombudsman Lynn Steele (Kudrow) and Hazel Miller (Cummings) because of his unorthodox teaching methods and refusal to acquiesce to “PC” rules.
