"Good News" (also know as "The Good News") is an American sitcom that aired on UPN from 1997 to 1998. The series was a spin-off of the UPN series "Sparks". [cite web|url=|title=Fox, UPN each likely to add 4 new shows|date=1997-05-19|publisher="Variety"|accessdate=2008-07-30]


The series focused on David Randolph (David Ramsey), a young acting pastor designated to South Central's African American Church of Life. Initially, the majority of the church's members balk at the young pastor's new position and resent him replacing their former pastor. With the help of the church's secretary, Vera Hudson (Rose Jackson Moye), Randolph attempts to reunite the church and help his congregation.cite web|url=|title=A Wobbly Start, That’s for Sure|last=Rosenberg|first=Howard |date=1997-08-25||accessdate=2008-07-30] [cite news|url=|title= Television in Review|last=James|first=Caryn|date=1997-08-25|publisher="New York Times"|accessdate=2008-07-30]

Other cast members included Roz Ryan as Hattie, the church's cook, Tracey Cherelle Jones as the church's youth director, Guy Torry as a choir member and janitor.

The series was canceled in 1998, after 22 episodes.
