Tina Fey is Killing It, Sells Second TV Project
5:03 pm, August 19th | by Colette McIntyre
While we are still mourning the loss of 30 Rock, spending our nights working on our night cheese and wondering why Alec Baldwin won’t let us love him, Tina Fey has hit the ground running. A sitcom developed by Fey, her 30 Rock co-showrunner Robert Carlock, and 30 Rock co-executive producer Matt Hubbard, has landed a series commitment from Fox after a multiple network bidding war. This news comes just days after Fey sold a separate comedy from 30 Rock writer-producer Colleen McGuinness to NBC.
According to Deadline, the Fox project is a multi-camera comedy about a women’s college that, for the first time ever, begins accepting men. Matt Hubbard is slated to write. Fey’s second show for next season is a female-centered workplace comedy about a young woman reconnecting with her father on Fire Island. Both series hail from Universal Television and Fey’s production company Little Stranger.
In short, rejoice! There are two new Tina Fey-affiliated comedies on the horizon! Now what have you done during your unemployment? Alphabetized your library and finished Friday Night Lights within a month? Yeah. Me too…. Just further proof that Ms. Fey is better than us.
