‘Great News’ Canceled By NBC After Two Seasons

But now at 30 and feeling stuck in her career as a news producer at The Breakdown — a national cable news show that shoots in Secaucus, NJ — Katie is starting to have some doubts. Meanwhile, her mother also looking for a change. The logline: Katie (Heelan) was raised by an overly involved mom (Martin) who always told her she was destined for greatness. After 30 years of being a stay-at-home mom, she decides that it's never too late to follow your dreams and lands an internship at her daughter's news show. Katie is not pleased.
Created by 30 Rock alumna Tracey Wigfield and exec produced by 30 Rock creator Tina Fey, the series had a modestly rated run in midseason 2017. The comedy clinched a renewal, largely based on Fey's clout at NBCUniversal, with help from largely positive reviews. With Fey stepping in for a guest arc to help jump-start the show, Great News was given a plum Season 2 slot behind Will & Grace on Thursday but did not show improvement and did not get a back order.The comedy's 13-episode sophomore run ended in January.
The series was produced by Little Stranger, Bevel Gears, Big Wig Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment in association with Universal Television.” /> 30 Rock alums Wigfield and Fey also executive produced Great News alongside Robert Carlock and David Miner. John Michael Higgins, Nicole Richie, Adam Campbell and Horatio Sanz co-starred in Great News, with series creator Tracey Wigfield and Fey recurring.
Great News got bad news from its network today. NBC has canceled the workplace/family comedy starring Briga Heelan and Andrea Martin after two seasons.
