All about IT
Fox has recently nabbed the latest project from Tina Fey in what was considered an all out bidding war between multiple networks.
Fey will be reuniting with her “30 Rock” co-showrunner and co-executive producer Matt Hubbard and Robert Carlock. Hubbard will be writing the show, as well as executive producing it with Fey, Carlock, and David Miner from 3 Arts.
The project was picked up for a rare straight-to-series order, skipping the early development phase of television where a pilot episode is used to determine the pick-up of a new show.
The series comes from Universal Television where Fey, Hubbard, and Carlock all have deals with the studio, and from Fey’s own production company, Little Stranger.
This is the second sale for Little Stranger; NBC recently picked up a pilot for development penned by former 30 Rock writer/producer Colleen McGuinness. Fey and Carlock are co-executive producers on that project.
The Fox project, which is currently untitled, is a multi-camera comedy and is set at a women’s college that begins accepting men for the first time in its history.
