Katie and Greg of "Great News" are definitely not falling for each other as he wears tie on face wielding a 4ft fluorescent tube, as she grabs his collar

I guess this would be one good film use for safety coated fluorescent bulbs.

I am surprised and pleased that NBC decided to bring back “Great News” for season two just six episodes into airing the first! ¬†The move comes right before the 2017 upfronts and¬†is one of a few shining¬†moments¬†amongst a bloodbath. ¬†Renewals, cancellations, pilots picked up, developments terminated. ¬†There’s so many random factors and variations that it’s hard to believe sometimes that good series can get through. ¬†But then among the devastation rises a bright¬†star like “Great News.”

Tracey Wigfield has the chops – she trained under Tina Fey and went on to write with Mindy Kaling. ¬†The downside is I’ve discovered¬†a horrendous guffaw that flows forth¬†from my belly straight out of my face three to four times each episode, but¬†the rest of it is fast, funny and¬†unique.
