[News] New Tina Fey Comedy Lands Series Commitment at Fox


Tina Fey is arguably America’s pre-eminent comedienne. After stints as Saturday Night Live‘s first female head writer and then co-anchor of the Weekend Update, Fey went on to create and star in one of the most acclaimed sitcoms in the past decade, the recently concluded 30 Rock. After writing and starring in 2008′s “Baby Mama” and then co-starring alongside Steve Carrell in 2010′s “Date Night”, Fey’s focus appeared to be on finishing out 30 Rock’s run.

Though Fey has kept a low profile since the sitcom’s final episode in January 2013, it looks like she’s actually been developing new original projects. Reports indicate that after a bidding war between multiple networks, Fox has secured the rights to a new, hotly-anticipated multi-camera show, described as “a comedy which takes place at a women’s college that has just opened its doors to men for the first time.”

Fey has no plans to star and will be executive producing alongside Matt Hubbard and Robert Carlock, both of whom worked on 30 Rock as a writer and showrunner, respectively. This as-yet-untitled show is actually the second new show Fey has set up this year. Both shows share a character-based, institution-set basis, aspects which are firmly in Fey’s wheelhouse. Fey’s new show has received a rare straight-to-series order, which indicates just how hungry the networks are for anything with Fey attached. 30 Rock drew fair-to-middling ratings but received high critical praise throughout its seven-season run.
