As though Tina Fey and Robert Carlock had not already given the world enough laughter (in the form of hit shows like 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), they are now producing what may be the next great behind-the-scenes comedy.
Great News is the story of a mother (comedy legend Andrea Martin) who takes an internship at her daughter’s news station. Her producer-daughter is sure it will all end in disaster, but we’re guessing hilarity and hijinks ensue instead. The cast also features a host of zany characters, played by the likes of SNL alum Horatio Sanz and ex-reality star Nicole Richie. A product of the twisted mind of Tracey Wigfield, whose resume includes work with Fey on 30 Rock and Mindy Kaling on The Mindy Project, expect the kind of fast paced jokes those shows deliver so well. Great News premiers April 25 on NBC. nbc.com
