Yes, Tina Fey, you can have it all, assuming “all” means creating and starring in a stellar Netflix series and working on another project for NBC. Working with 30 Rock co-creator Robert Carlock and Emmy-winning writer Tracey Wigfield, Fey’s new comedy, about “a mother-daughter relationship that is challenged when an overly involved New Jersey mom gets an internship at her daughter’s workplace, a cable news network,” received a pilot order from We Peacock Comedy.

“The combination of Tina, Robert, and Tracey we think makes this as good as it gets,” NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said, apparently forgetting that he had two of those three in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Speaking of good comedy: Parks and Recreation‘s (Ken) tremendous creator Michael Schur is also back in business with NBC.

Tentatively titled The Good Place, it “centers on a woman wrestling with what it means to be good. Mike came in and laid out the whole season. We loved it so much, we ordered it to series,” Greenblatt said. “The guy who brought Amy Poehler to primetime is bringing another strong, funny, complicated female character to TV.” (Via)

Just when I thought I was out (of needing to watch NBC comedies), they pull me back in.
