It's pretty rare for a TV network to skip the pilot stage and order a new show straight to series, but NBC has ordered 13 episodes of a new comedy created by Tina Fey and starring Office alum Ellie Kemper, TV Line reports.

After the show's dismal 1994-1995 season, which saw near cancellation and the firing/resignation of 12 cast members, those six were [...]

Deadline reports that NBC and the award show's producer Dick Clark Productions have invited them to return as hosts for next year's ceremony, which received critical acclaim and the Globes' best ratings in five years. NBC isn't having active conversations with Fey and Poehler yet, but they have received an open invitation.
