GREAT NEWS Script Reading

GREAT NEWS Script Reading

ATX TV Festival invites you to revisit Great News with a special live script reading featuring original and guest cast!

From Creator/Showrunner/Executive Producer Tracey Wigfield (30 Rock, Saved by the Bell), and executive producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock (30 Rock, The Mayor), Great News follows up-and-coming news producer Katie Wendelsohn (Briga Heelan), who finds herself dealing with a new intern: her mother, Carol (Andrea Martin).

Wigfield will be joined by original cast members Briga Heelan (Love, Cougar Town) and John Michael Higgins (Saved by the Bell, Pitch Perfect, A Mighty Wind), guest actor Jake Lacy (The White Lotus), and more surprise cast for a live script reading of a favorite episode, and a look back at this canceled-too-soon favorite.
