"No News Is Bad News" is a fun filled comedy that takes place in Dimsum, North Dakota, a present day "super suburb". The main character, Blaine Joseph Johnson Jr, who goes by BJ, is a 27 year old screw up reporter who can't seem to catch a break in life. He still lives at home with his alcoholic, divorcee mother who thinks she is still young, and his girlfriend who is a "high school has been" still hanging on to her teenage glory days. BJ and best friend Victor Patel, a 26-year-old aspiring Indian rapper, both work at local news station KWRC-TV. The news station is suffering from a lack of crime/activity in the town, as well as losing its beloved head anchor. The job opening provides an opportunity for BJ to finally make something of himself, so he makes up his mind that he must get the position. He assembles a crew of his friends, and they go around town committing non-violent crimes and pranks in order to boost his stock in the race for the position. His arch nemesis, Richard Fox, a narcissitic brown noser, assembles a team of his own and both crews go back and forth commiting similar crimes. This story provides entertainment in the forms of wit and outright comedy.
