Tina Fey Sold Not One, but TWO Sitcoms This Week


Fans pining for the comedy stylings of Tina Fey were delighted this week to hear that Fey would be returning (probably not as an actor) to TV with a Cheers-like comedy set on Fire Island. That, as it turns out, is just Part One of the good news. Part Deux is that there’s a second Tina Fey project coming down the chute, this one about a women’s college that begins accepting men for the first time in its history.

From Deadline:

In a very competitive situation with multiple networks bidding, a multi-camera comedy from 30 Rock co-executive producer Matt Hubbard, creator/co-showrunner Tina Fey and co-showrunner Robert Carlock has landed at Fox with a series commitment. The project is set at a women’s college that, for the first time in its history, begins accepting men.

So, Tina Fey plays the dean, right? I mean, that’s how it has to be. Unless they can get Allison Janney or Joan Cusack.
