Carol Burnett is making her TV return — with a little help from the younger set.

The comedy legend is set to make her television return in the unscripted series A Little Help with Carol Burnett. Premiering in 2018, the Netflix original will feature Burnett and guests — celebrities and regular folk — getting advice on their real-life issues from a panel of straight-talking kids.

“Someone once asked me how old I am inside,” said Burnett in a statement. “I thought about it, and came up with, ‘I’m about 8.’ So it’s going to be a lot of fun playing with kids my age.”

Burnett is best known for her 11-season run in the iconic CBS comedy The Carol Burnett Show. Earlier this year, the actress signed up for a starring role in the Amy Poehler-produced ABC pilot Household Name, but ultimately, the project wasn’t picked up to series.
