"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", Krasinksi said in a statement, per the outlets.More news: Inflation rises in Nigeria for 8th straight month
The first new episodes of Some Good News will be shown on the rebranded CBS All Access this summer, before other ViacomCBS networks get the second run of instalments. This is a project near and dear to him after working on it for seven years. Episode 7, which featured a cast reunion of sorts of The Office, now has 11 million views. The show, filmed in Krasinski's own home, went on indefinite hiatus Sunday after eight episodes.
And while Krasinski, 40, will no longer act as the series' host, the actor-director will remain involved as an executive producer and will continue to have some sort of periodic on-air presence. Recording in front of a colourful "SGN" sign - "my daughter's made it", he told debut guest Steve Carell - Krasinski informed viewers he was attempting to inject optimism into the current climate with a show dedicated entirely to positive news stories.More news: Pats owner Robert Kraft's SB ring raises $1.025M in auction
Krasinski aired his last episode of Some Good News - his YouTube show that shares exactly what the name implies - this week, presumably concluding that there was no room to grow after marrying a couple on Zoom. Krasinski filmed "A Quiet Place" and its sequel with Viacom subsidiary Paramount Pictures, and his Amazon series "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan" is produced by Paramount Television Studios.More news: Palestinians Stop Sharing Intelligence With CIA Over West Bank Land Grab Plans
