Premiering Tonight: Great News

Posted on April 25, 2017 at 3:02 pm

Tina Fey and Robert Carlock are the producers of “Great News,” from their “30 Rock” colleague Tracey Wigfield.  It’s the story of a television news producer and her mother, who becomes an intern on her show.  And it’s adorable. Here Wigfield and her real mother talk to Briga Heelan and Andrea Martin, who play versions of their real-life relationship on the show.  The whole cast is terrific, including John Michael Higgins, Horatio Sanz and (yes) Nicole Ritchie.

It premieres April 25, 2017 on NBC.
