NBC Making Some More Sitcoms with Tina Fey and Mike Schur

August 13, 2015


Hoping to finally find another critically-lauded sitcom--their next 30 Rock, their next Parks and Recreation--NBC has turned to the people behind 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation. On the final morning of the Television Critics Association press tour today, the network reportedly announced that they've given series pickups to The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt duo Tina Fey and Robert Carlock and to Brooklyn Nine-Nine creator Mike Schur.

From Fey and Carlock, they're developing an untitled comedy said to be based on the life of Tracey Wigfield (above), a Mindy Project writer that won an Emmy for her work co-writing the 30 Rock finale. Written by Wigfield, it will see her taking a job at news network where her mom has just returned to the workforce. From Schur they've bought The Good Place, said to be "a high-concept series that centers on a woman wrestling with what it means to be good." I just hope it's not like How I Met Your Mother, where they make us wait until the end before they reveal the concept of goodness.
