Tina Fey Producing New Comedy for NBC
Tina Fey and her fellow 30 Rock showrunner Robert Carlock are returning to NBC to produce a new workplace comedy, Deadline reported Tuesday. The Cheers-esque comedy (their description, not mine) will center on a “young woman in search of reconnecting with her father finds a new home and family on Fire Island,” according to the report. (No word yet on who will play her nosy gay neighbors.)
Fey, of course, wrapped a seven-season gig with NBC when 30 Rock ended in January. That show is nominated for 13 Emmys, and is the heavy favorite to win Best Comedy Series one last time.
