FAMILY SATURDAY: NBC'S NEW SITCOM 'GREAT NEWS' WITH BRIGA HEELAN, ADAM CAMPBELL! 'BAKERY IN BROOKLYN' ROMANTIC MOVIE WITH AIMEE TEEGARDEN

'GREAT NEWS' TV SITCOM
IT IS TAKE YOUR MOTHER TO WORK DAY!
We're family friendly this Saturday, people, with two new lovely comedies to announce, beginning with a new television sitcom GREAT NEWS which will start airing at NBC April 25th!
Getting along with office colleagues can be rough, but working with your mom? That’s a whole different story, and it’s the headline for Katie Wendelson (Briga Heelan), a smart, ambitious news producer at national cable news show “The Breakdown.” After 30 years of being a stay at home mom, Carol (Andrea Martin) decides that it’s never too late to follow your dreams and lands an internship at her daughter’s news show. This is Katie’s worst nightmare, until she comes to realize that with her biggest cheerleader at her side, she and her mom both might just make it after all. Sitting in the co-anchor chair at “The Breakdown” is Chuck Pierce (John Michael Higgins), the blowhard, difficult to please news desk veteran. Chuck intimidates everyone on staff except for Carol, who uses her polished mom skills to deal with him. Alongside him is Portia (Nicole Richie), the young, very hip co-host who brings a different perspective to old fashioned journalism. Leading the news team is Greg (Adam Campbell), the dashing young executive producer. Katie’s closest friend at the office is Justin (Horatio Sanz), the laid back video editor who has seen it all and is always more than happy to dole out his zenlike advice. Rounding out the newsroom is Beth (Tracey Wigfield), the creepy resident meteorologist who is far from your stereotypical weather girl.



'BAKERY IN BROOKLYN'
ROMANTIC COMEDY TRAILER
Out this weekend in USA cinemas is romantic family comedy BAKERY IN BROOKLYN starring Aimee Teegarden in the story of  Vivien and Chloe, two very different cousins living in Brooklyn who have been inseparable ever since they were children. At least, they were until recently. The sudden passing of their Aunt Isabelle has left them with a challenging inheritance: their aunt's quaint Boulangerie, named Isabelle's. Vivien, who has postponed her dream trip to Europe to help run the shop, wants to keep things traditional, but Chloe, who works as Fernando's assistant, a chef for a popular daytime cooking TV show, feels they should put a modern spin on things. But when the bank reveals that the Boulangerie is in danger of being foreclosed, Vivien and Chloe must put the baking mitts down to preserve their family's legacy. Vivien tries to deceive the bank pretending that Dave, her now widower uncle, lives on the boulangerie after the loss of his home by the debts, being helped by Paul, the agent sent by the bank. The trouble increases when Paul shows a love interest by Vivien, meanwhile Fernando and Chloe ...

  1. I'm sort of a romcom fetishist and I'm usually disappointed (sob sob). Is this a good one?

    5. what kind of snacks? I haven't eaten real food in a decade, and thus stories of food amuse me in a darkly nostalgic and yearning way

  4. These both sound so cute! Now, I actually kind of like Nicole Richie. So glad she doesn't have that nasty Paris Hilton glued to her hip anymore.

    I can't wait to see the delicious treats in the bakery!

    1. You do? I remember that I watched her in that Jessica Simpson fashion competition show which I actually loved, and she was nice to her contestants methinks, but I don't think she's a sitcom material and she needs to be fed like promptly

  5. Yes, she is skin and bones, but she never put on the false air that she was a moron, like many of those other girls who were trying to make it big in the reality world in the early 2000's. I like that she keeps her private life private, seems to hold her marriage together well, keeps her kids out of the spotlight, and just seems like a genuinely nice person. I haven't ever seen her in a real acting scene, but I'd give her a fair shot before brushing her off. Then again, you could very well be right. None of those reality starlets like Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, etc could act to save their lives, so we shall see if Nicole is any different.

    1. Jessica isn't a starlet, she sings and has a very lucrative fashion business, Paris, though, is the mother of them all :) Or was, before the Craptrashian ho appeared.
