A New Tina Fey Comedy Is Coming to Fox


Everything’s coming up Tina. A few days ago we heard about a new NBC show Fey and 30 Rock showrunner Robert Carlock are executive producing, and now it turns out she’s doing yet another comedy at Fox.

So what’s the setting for this new sitcom? A women’s college. Or, well, it used to be. Check out what details we have underneath the cut.

Fey and former 30 Rock writer/producer Matt Hubbard have gotten the green light from Fox to helm the yet-untitled sitcom, which, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

“is set at a women’s college that, for the first time in its history, begins accepting men.”

That’s all we know so far, but it’s enough to get me interested. For even more of a 30 Rock pedigree, two of the late show’s executive producers, Carlock and David Miner, will also be executive producing this new program, which has already gotten a series commitment by Fox.

Not that I’d begrudge Fey doing as many new TV shows as she darn well pleases, but… two shows? You’re leaving yourselves enough time to work on that Mean Girls musical you’re doing, right? Please?

    The only thing I worry about is that it’s on Fox, but then again maybe they’re trying to build a comedy block with the New Girl and the Mindy Project.

    Fox probably read exactly what we did, “is set at a women’s college that, for the first time in its history, begins accepting men.”, and decided they were on board. I hope it is more “Fey” and less “Fox”.

    I remember a show like that did exist with the exact premise.

    I’m pretty sure I’ve seen the “single-sex school becomes co-ed” premise quite a few times before, though usually it’s girls arriving at a boys school.
