Fox Wins the Bidding War for Tina Fey’s New College Sitcom
Next season, Tina Fey might end up having new comedies on two different networks. Last week, we told you that Tina Fey and her fellow 30 Rock writer/producers Robert Carlock and Matt Hubbard are developing a new sitcom and that multiple networks were in a bidding war for it. Now, Deadline reports that Fox has bought the project with a series commitment for 2014-15, beating out NBC.
The untitled series will be executive produced by Fey and Carlock and created by Hubbard. It follows an all-womens college that begins letting in men for the first time. This is the second show Fey has in the works for next season, following another show, a workplace comedy from 30 Rock writer Colleen McGuinness, she sold to NBC last week. For now, that’s two shows she has in the works for next season, but there’s still plenty of time for her to get more started up.
