NBC's New Tina Fey Project Deadline
NBC is embarking on a new comedy project with Tina Fey. Deadline.com reports that the "30 Rock" creator and co-showrunner Robert Carlock have sold a female-focused workplace project to the network.
While it's similar to "30 Rock" in that it's about a young female comedy writer, the project is said to be similar to "Cheers," the story says.
The young woman is trying to reconnect with her father and finds a new home and family on Fire Island, the piece adds.
The project is the first from Fey’s Little Stranger production company after she signed a four-year deal with Universal Television last year, the report notes.
