NBC has ordered Great News, the latest from executive producer Tina Fey, to series. The show follows the life of millennial Katie (Briga Heelan), who's life is rattled when her mother joins the cable news station where she works as an intern.
The series is created by Tracey Wigfield, who based the show loosely on her real-life experience. Andrea Martin will play Katie's mother, with additional cast members to include Adam Campbell, Kimrie Lewis-Davis and John Michael Higgins. Robert Carlock and David Miner, who wrote and produced 30 Rock along with Fey, are on board too, making us supremely giddy with anticipation. Talk about an apt title!
