    30 Rock executive producers/showrunners Tina Fey and Robert Carlock will be back on NBC next fall with a new New York-based single-camera series starring another familiar NBC face, The Office alumna Ellie Kemper.

    “Tina and Robert, who cemented their partnership on ’30 Rock,’ have created a new signature comedy for us that is audacious, emotional, and clever,” said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBCEntertainment. 

    The network has given a straight-to-series 13-episode order to the untitled project, written by Fey and Carlock. It will center on a woman (Kemper) who escapes from a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York City. Universal TV and Fey’s studio-based Little Stranger are producing, with Fey, Carlock and 3 Arts’ David Miner executive producing.

    Awesome, can’t wait. I also think it was smart of them to just start at 13 episodes unlike a full season like they did with MJF

    Normally, “NBC” and “straight-to-series” in the same sentence is a punchline, but it was absolutely the right move here and good that they maybe have learned their lesson from giving The Michael J. Fox Show a full season order.

    Ellie Kemper was a lot of fun to watch on the office. I’ll be looking forward to this. I’m also happy that NBC isn’t giving up on sitcoms considering their abysmal performance this season.

    I wish Tina Fey would develop a show for CBS. She deserves more than 5 million people watching her shows.

    I think Tina Fey’s show will fit ABC more, and still has a nice amount of viewers.

    Love Fey, love Carlock, love Kemper. Hope to love this.

    Willing to bet that an older Oscar winner/nominee will be cast in a supporting part in this. Any guesses?

    “I think Tina Fey’s show will fit ABC more, and still has a nice amount of viewers.”

    Their new comedies have been flopping for the last 4 seasons.

    I’m glad this is single-cam. I know she previously mentioned wanting to do a multi-cam, so I was worried.

    Of course it could fail, but I believe it has a better chance to thrive. On NBC, it will have an easier time to survive, but its ratings would still be pretty bad.
