From executive producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, the team that brought you the Emmy-winning series "30 Rock" and Netflix's hit show "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," comes a new workplace comedy for NBC.
Check out the trailer for "Great News," starring Briga Heelan (Undateable, Cougar Town) as a stressed-out news producer who's horrified to learn that her meddling and oversharing mother (played by veteran comedienne Andrea Martin, of "SCTV" and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" fame) has chosen to come out of retirement to work as her intern.
The ten-episode half-hour comedy, which is created by Emmy-winning "30 Rock" writer Tracey Wigfield, also stars John Michael Higgins, Nicole Richie, Adam Campbell, and Horatio Sanz.
"Great News" is set to premiere Tuesday, April 25 on NBC.
Getting along with some colleagues can be rough, but working with your mom? That's a whole other story. When Katie, an up-and-coming news producer, finds out her overbearing mom (Andrea Martin) has rejoined the workforce as an intern at Katie's TV station, it might just be the worst news ever. But, with her biggest cheerleader at her side, Katie might finally get the recognition she deserves! The laughs hit close to home in this new office comedy from Executive Producers Tina Fey, Robert Carlock and the producers of "30 Rock."
