NBC Orders Mother-Daughter Comedy from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock
Tina Fey and Robert Carlock may still be basking in the success of their new Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but that doesn’t mean the duo is taking any time off.
NBC has ordered a pilot production for an untitled comedy from the duo, written by Emmy winner Tracey Wigfield.
The project will focus on 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.
“Tina and Robert are two of the pre-eminent voices in comedy, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that they’re bringing their next project to NBC,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “We also adore Tracey, who has written some brilliant episodes of both 30 Rock and The Mindy Project. With this super-talented trio at the helm, we’re eagerly looking forward to their next great show.”
Fey and Carlock have faced a measurable amount of success together. Both were writers and producers on the Emmy Award winning comedy 30 Rock and their critically applauded Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is currently up for even Emmys, including outstanding comedy series, in its first year of eligibility.
