Nicole Richie Is Coming Back to TV
The former reality star is trying her hand at network comedy.
The new show follows a mother-daughter relationship that gets complicated when the mom (Andrea Martin) takes an internship at her daughter’s (Briga Heelan) office, a cable news network. Richie will play Portia, the fashionable co-host of the fictional news show which the sitcom centers around. She butts heads with her older, more traditional co-host (played by John Michael Higgins) who wants to produce serious journalism.
Although Richie’s best known for wild younger years on The Simple Life and Candidly Nicole (not counting her flourishing fashion career), but she has acted in Empire and Chuck in minor roles. Great News will be her first series-regular acting job.
