Fey planning new college comedy

Tina Fey has a new TV project under way

Tina Fey is working on a new college comedy with her 30 Rock co-writer Matt Hubbard.

The project has sparked a competitive bidding war between broadcasters, according to The Hollywood Reporter, as 30 Rock co-showrunner Robert Carlock and Tina's producer and composer husband Jeff Richmond are also on board.

The untitled sitcom will be set in a women's college which starts accepting men for the first time.

NBC and Fox are said to be among the networks interested.

Tina created and starred in 30 Rock - about the team behind a comedy sketch show - which just aired its seventh and final season in the US.

Though not a massive ratings winner, the show was a cult hit, proved successful with critics and scooped a string of awards including Golden Globes and Emmys.

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
