John Krasinski provides the reason he decided to sell 'Some Good News.'
John Krasinski disclosed specifically the reason he sold his quarantine YouTube show, "Some Good News," to ViacomCBS.
On 'Hey There, Human,' the daily Instagram Live series that Wilson hosts for SoulPancake, Krasinski said: "It was one of those things where I was only planning on doing eight of them during quarantine, because I have these other things that I'm going to be having to do very soon, like 'Jack Ryan' and all this other stuff."

The actor continued, "More than that...writing, directing, and producing -- all those things -- with a couple of my friends was so much."
Krasinski explained: "I knew it wouldn't be sustainable with my prior commitments."
The 40-year-old claimed his alternatives were to wrap things up or sell it so that someone else could continue it running.
Although Krasinski will not host the current iteration of the series on a regular basis, he will still be active.
"In eight weeks [Some Good News] went from not existing to now being on one of these huge news networks," the actor continued.

Krasinski added they've been organizing a ton of fun stuff, and he can't wait to get in. He's trying to be a part of it while he can, so he'll be hosting a couple of episodes, bringing on a different community of people.
The actor reiterated how much the series meant to others, but the fact is, it meant even more to him than anybody else. It's definitely the most emotionally fulfilled he's ever felt in his whole life.
