John Krasinski’s 'Some Good News' moving to TV with new host

John Krasinski has unexpectedly come out even more of a victor than expected during this unprecedented period of quarantine, as Some Good News, his at first small effort to uplift and inspire the masses, has now taken on a life of its own.

According to The Hollywood Reporter and Variety, Krasinski has inked a deal with CBS/Viacom following a "massive bidding war" to license "Some Good News", Krasinski's feel-good YouTube series that highlights positive stories during the pandemic. This is a project near and dear to him after working on it for seven years.

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. Episode 7, which featured a cast reunion of sorts of The Office, now has 11 million views. And while Krasinski will continue on as executive producer, with a recurring on-air presence, a new host will be chosen before new episodes appear on CBS All Access, the outlet reports.

The initial series of shows ran for eight episodes. "Never did I expect to be joining the ranks of such a historic news organization as CBS".

Krasinski started the short-lived YouTube series in March as a way to bring, as the title suggests, some good news to the public amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that's forced countless people to stay at home and practice social distancing.

Neither representatives for Krasinski nor CBS immediately responded to Fox News' request for comment. 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.
