Great News (NBC) – Premieres 25th April – Renewed
Comedy about Katie Wendelson, a news producer who finds herself being continually passed over for working on the main news segments by her boss.
After beginning to accept she won’t be given a fair chance she accompanies her parents to the funeral of one of their friends, where she believes the vicars sermon is directed at her to pursue her dreams.
Armed with a new sense of purpose she gets herself the chance to produce the lead segment. While working on the piece she then finds out her controlling mother has taken an internship at the same news station revealing that she believed what the vicar said was aimed at her.
After the initial teething problems of her mum revealing personal details about her, they make up and where the mum imparts some advice and the news story that was about to bomb is saved and everyone is happy.
It’s a pretty bland network comedy.
