Nicole Richie spoke to Variety’s executive editor of TV, Debra Birnbaum, on their podcast “Remote Controlled” about Nicole’s role in Great News. They describe the podcast as featuring “the best and brightest in television, both in front of and behind the camera.” Birnhaum and TV critic Sonia Saraiya also speak to the executive producers of Great News, Tina Fey and Tracey Wigfield, before diving into conversation with Nicole.

“The second I read the script, I said to myself, ‘This is something I would love to do, this is really funny,’” says Richie, who auditioned three times for the role. “Television is something that I’ve always done. I like making people laugh.”

Nicole Richie talks about her family and balancing motherhood with her career. She also touches on what it was like to work on ‘Great News‘.

The premiere of Great News is still fast approaching! Here’s another brief teaser to get you even more excited.

Watch this EW digital exclusive of Nicole Richie and John Michael Higgins in their characters Portia and Chuck on ‘Great News.’ The series premieres in 4 days!

Meet Chuck Pierce and Portia Scott-Griffith, the lead anchors at MMN’s flagship (or flagship-adjacent) nightly news program, The Breakdown. Portia (Nicole Richie) is the millennial whisperer, proudly en vogue with her finger always on the pulse, while pompous veteran Chuck (John Michael Higgins) frequently needs to keep his in check.

The stars of NBC’s Great News — ambitious producer Katie (Briga Heelan) and her intern mother Carol (Andrea Martin) — may admirably try to climb the corporate ladder, but it’s only to reach the gossamer peak where Chuck and Portia, the king and queen bee of MMN, reign.

In the interest of getting to know the friendly-ish faces who will be breaking news to the nation, NBC has released a little preview of what makes Chuck and Portia tick. As you’ll see above, it’s less ‘divine sweet mystery of life’ and more ‘time bomb.’

Great News premieres April 25 on NBC.
