NBC Orders New Comedies From Tina Fey, ‘Parks & Recreation’ Creator

Aug 13, 2015  •  Post A Comment

NBC has placed orders for two new comedy projects with impressive star power behind them — one from “30 Rock” pair Tina Fey and Robert Carlock and another from Michael Schur, creator of “Parks & Recreation,” Variety reports.

“NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt announced the high-profile pickups, both from Universal Television, Thursday during his presentation at the Television Critics Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton,” Variety notes.

The report adds: “The Fey-Carlock project was created by another ’30 Rock’ alum, Tracey Wigfield. It revolves around a millennial woman whose life is complicated when her New Jersey mother gets an internship at the cable network where she works.”

The Fey project received a pilot order, with NBC placing a straight-to-series order for 13 episodes of the Schur project. NBC has been mum about the details of the Schur effort other than noting that it focuses on a strong female character.

  1. I’m sure Dr. Brandt is turning over in his grave.

  2. Tina Fey, the most over-rated television personality in history. I guess all you have to do is make fun of Sarah Palin for a while and Hollywood will worship you forever. Jeez, aren’t there any talented people out there who could write a show?

  3. Apparently there are several million people who think that Tina Fey is slightly more talented than you do Mr. Bar-ack. You must be one of those far right TV critics who can see Russia out of his kitchen window.

  4. Tina Fey has been one of the best comedic writers of the new century. She was responsible for creating some of the funniest skits on both Saturday Night Live and The Jon Stewart Show, both being winners. Least we not to forget her acting talent on her own show, 30 Something. I look forward to seeing her once again on the television screen.

    Although she did several extremely funny SNL skits as Sarah Palin during the 2008 election year, I sincerely hope that she puts that particular character in the dead files and never plays her again. The country. like the Fox Television Network has had their fill of that airheaded woman and her entire backwoods family of shallow people.
