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.’
Cat Greenleaf recently interviewed Nicole Richie on Talk Stoop about her new sitcom Great News and more. During the interview, Cat and Nicole high-fived which didn’t go according to plan, but provided an amusing result!
Earlier today, Nicole Richie took part in a Live Microsoft Workshop with Caroline Ghosn from Levo League! She offered her business advice to some developing their own businesses, and took questions from the Facebook audience in the comments. You can see the video below:
