John Krasinski’s ‘Some Good News’ has some good news of its own.
On Thursday, ViacomCBS announced that they picked up the extremely popular web series and are taking it to CBS All Access. Krasinski started SGN as a way to uplift and encourage fans during the coronavirus pandemic.
But while Krasinski will continue to be the executive producer and make some cameos, he will not be host of the show.
In a statement Krasinski said, “Could not be more excited and proud to be partnering with CBS-Viacom to be able to bring Some Good News to so many more people! From the first episode, our goal was to create a news show dedicated entirely to good news. Never did I expect to be joining the ranks of such a historic news organization as CBS.”
Before the ViacomCBS pickup, the web series was self-financed and self-produced by Krasinski weekly and included a reunion with his The Office co-stars and a Brad Pitt appearance.
