Kay Cannon Gets Pilot Offer from Fox

A few months back, we told you that former 30 Rock writer Kay Cannon was leaving the show because of an overall deal she signed with 20th Century Fox that would have her work on The New Girl and allow her to work on her own stuff. Well, Kay moved quickly and already has a pilot commitment from Fox. The show is an office comedy like Mary Tyler Moore but with football. It would focus on a female lead who works on an NFL Sunday sort of show. I hope she's "trying to have it all" and has a gruff voiced boss with the piercing blue eyes of an ice dragon and a talent who likes to take his shirt off and a producer named Pe–  OK, you get it. With 30 Rock leaving this year, I think we'd all love to see it replaced with 30 Rock 2: Football Rock.
