Tracey Wigfield’s (The Mindy Project, 30 Rock) new comedy is set in “The Breakdown” newsroom when one producers mom suddenly becomes her co-worker.

“Believing she was always destined for greatness, Katie (Briga Heelan) finds herself feeling stuck in her career and is left to wonder if her big dreams will ever come to fruition.

Much to her dismay, along comes Carol (Andrea Martin), her well-meaning but way-too-involved mom who decides on a lark that it’s not too late to follow her dreams and lands an internship at the station.

This just might be the worst news ever for Katie until she comes to realize that with her biggest cheerleader at her side, things may just change in her favor.”


Adam Campbell, Nicole Richie, Horatio Sanz, John Michael Higgins & Wigfield herself also star.

#GreatNews is executive produced by Tina Fey, Robert Carlock & David Miner. Beth McCarthy Miller directed the pilot.

Series premiere Tuesday, April 25 at 9/8c & 9:30/8:30c on NBC
