Television genius Mike Schur is teaming up with actress Natalie Morales to create a modern-day version of Cheers. The NBC show is called "Abby's" and will revolve around a former Army sergeant, played by Morales, who owns a bar in San Diego that creates a sense of community amongst the regulars that frequent it.
Apart from having been a writer and producer on The Office, Schur is the co-creator of Parks and Rec and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, while also being the sole creator of The Good Place. While the Cuban-American actress has also been on the big-screen, many people know Morales from her recurring role in Parks and Rec.
