It’s been over four years since Tina Fey and Robert Carlock‘s hit, Emmy-winning comedy series 30 Rock came to an end on NBC. Thankfully, their series The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix has helped fill the void, but the network that turned Tina Fey into a star on Saturday Night Live is about to bring her back to primetime.
Earlier this year, NBC brought the freshman comedy series Great News to air. Created by 30 Rock producer and writer Tracey Wigfield (and again executive produced by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock), the series follows a news reporter (Briga Heelan) who is forced to deal with her eccentric mother (Andrea Martin), who has just become an intern at the network news program for which she works. Surrounding them is quite the odd team of news anchors, producers, and staff members, making for a show that’s like The Newsroom meets 30 Rock.
Great News had a solid first season that shows the potential for greatness, just like 30 Rock, and for the second season coming this fall, they’ll be getting a little help from Tina Fey, who is joining the series for an extended arc. Find out more below. Read More »
