Odds are that NBC’s Great News most likely didn’t content and film an entire scene in seven days to oblige the discussion about Harvey Weinstein’s lewd behavior (duh). Thursday’s scene of the comic drama about workers at a daytime television show was continually going to air – it’s quite recently shockingly topical.
In Season 2 scene 3 (accessible on Hulu), Katie (Briga Wheelan) discovers that her show’s new maker Diana (Tina Fey) is sexually annoying male workers. When one says something, more approach, however Katie and Portia (Nicole Richie) decline to trust it.
“What number of more men need to approach before you trust us?” they inquire. The show sagaciously flips the sexual orientation content to indicate how silly the things a few men say in regards to ladies casualties are.
At the point when Katie stands up to Diana, she rejects it. “That wasn’t lewd behavior,” she says. For a minute, Katie is calmed, yet Diana goes on: “They needed it.”
Despite the fact that its given a comedic wind, Diana’s practices do constitute badgering. She asks one representative to more than once get a pen so she can take a gander at his butt, influences somebody to move for her, and powers one to eat a banana before her for fear that she fire him.
Katie is torn. She admired Diana as a manager, yet supposes she may be a terrible individual. She at that point discovers that Diana annoyed Katie’s mom Carol (Andrea Martin; she’s an understudy – that is the show!), and that drives everything home.
As the workers get ready to take a case to HR, Portia says it’s silly. She says to what extent it took to get Roger Ailes (and that he had an “awful penis”) before recommending they get Diana through a sting operation. Song goes covert to get her, yet Diana splits.
For reasons unknown Diana was purposely bugging everybody in the building since she needed to get brought down for badgering. She needed the payout that unmistakable harassers like Ailes, Billy Bush, and BIll O’Reilly got – a prepaid retirement masked as a discipline.
“We’re each of the a group of sickos,” says Chuck (John Michael Higgins) (he implies men). For a winding, sparkling minute, the representatives consent to report DIana for badgering – in light of a legitimate concern for sexual orientation uniformity in the work environment. They don’t proceed with it, however it’s an incredible con.
“Perhaps someday…we’ll live in this present reality where a lady can be a crawl,” Diana says. “Also, run home with a gigantic brilliant parachute.”
