TV preview: ‘Great News’ — sitcom is funny

First Published      Last Updated Apr 20 2017 02:49 pm

From the producers of "30 Rock" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" comes "Great News," which is the nightmare of everyone who has an overbearing mother. Katie (Briga Heelan) is a cable news producer who is horrified when her mother, Carol (Andrea Martin), gets an internship on the show. Give it a couple of episodes — it just might grow on you.
