Great news! Nicole Richie is BACK. After the cancellation of her hysterically funny VH1 reality show diatribe, Candidly Nicole, the socialite is back on TV in her first scripted role on NBC's Great News. Executive Producer Tina Fey picked her for her “impeccable comedic timing” that you just can't teach people.
Nicole plays Portia Scott-Griffith, one of the two main news anchors. She's got 21st century diluted gal power, who's horrendously self absorbed and disconnected from her baby boomer generation costar Chuck Pierce (John Michael Higgins)
