Margaret Cho Joins Tina Fey's Fox Comedy Series

Margaret Cho has joined Tina Fey's new Fox comedy, THR reports. The comedian — who earned an Emmy nomination in 2011 for her role as Kim Jong-il on 30 Rock — has joined Fey and Matt Hubbard's untitled Fox series known as Cabot College about a women's university that starts accepting male students. Cho will play Laura Thibault, "the president of Cabot College who made the difficult decision to admit men into the school. She's further described as a divisive figure on campus and does her best to be welcoming of the male freshman but is often irritated by their antics."

Created by 30 Rock alum Matt Hubbard and produced by Fey, Cabot College got a series commitment from Fox in October and begins shooting in March. So far, Cho joins standup Fortune Feimster, Broadway performer Jack Cutmore-Scott, and Guiding Light regular Bonnie Dennison as the announced cast.
