Appearing on Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Great News creator Tracey Wigfield said that Fey will guest-star as Diana St. Tropez, a business exec in the same vein as Facebook COO Sheryl Kara Sandberg.
Briga Heelan’s character, local news producer Katie, will idolize Diana, who has just penned a book titled
Bossy Pants Boss Bitch.
Since wrapping her Emmy-winning 30 Rock acting run, Fey’s TV roles have included Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (which she also exec-produces) and Difficult People.
Great News returns for its sophomore run on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 9:30/8:30c, where it will air between the already-renewed Will & Grace revival and Chicago Fire.
