Tina Fey's Collegiate Comedy Lands at FOX With Series Commitment


Tina Fey


Fey's collaboration with Matt Hubbard and Robert Carlock, the new series will take place at a women's college that has just opened its doors to men for the first time.

FOX has just scored a new hot sitcom from "30 Rock" trio after competitive bidding wars among broadcast networks, The Hollywood Reporter says. The project gets a straight-to-series order, completely bypassing the pilot process like "Hannibal" and "Under the Dome".

The multicamera comedy comes from "30 Rock" co-executive producer Matt Hubbard, creator/co-showrunner/actress Tina Fey, and another co-showrunner Robert Carlock. Hubbard will write the script with Fey, Carlock and 3 Arts' David Miner joining him as executive producers.

The show is still untitled. It will take place at a women's college that has just opened its doors to men for the first time.

This marks a second deal for Fey this week. The "Saturday Night Live" alum previously sold a single-camera workplace comedy to NBC. A collaboration with "30 Rock" writer-producer Colleen McGuinness, it will revolve around a woman who reconnects with her estranged father and finds a new home and family on Fire Island.
