Networks in Bidding War Over Tina Fey's College Comedy


Tina Fey


NBC and Fox are some of the networks interested in the comedy written by the '30 Rock' creator and Matt Hubbard.

Tina Fey has sparked a bidding war among networks with her new project. The Emmy Award-winning writer and actress teams up with "30 Rock" writer Matt Hubbard to pen a new comedy, which is reportedly eyed by multiple networks.

NBC and FOX are only some of them which have shown interest in the untitled comedy. The story revolves around a former all-girls college that has just opened its doors to men for the first time.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fey and Hubbard are going to produce the project under her four-year overall deal with Universal Television. The "Saturday Night Live" alumna, however, will likely not star in it.

The college comedy is another of Fey's new projects following the end of "30 Rock", which she created and starred on. She reunites with "30 Rock" executive producer Robert Carlock to back a new female-centered workplace comedy from "30 Rock" writer Colleen McGuinness.

Said to be in the vein of "Cheers", it centers on a young woman in search of reconnecting with her father who finds a new home and family on Fire Island. NBC recently nabbed the character-driven comedy.
