Following the success of "30 Rock" and "Parks and Recreation", NBC is planning to bring a new series from the comedic geniuses behind both the shows. It has been officially announced by the network that the new comedy series from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock of "30 Rock", and Mike Shur of "Parks and Recreation" have been given the green light.
Shur, who is among the funniest comedy writers on TV today, will present the new comedy, titled "A Good Place", which will bring a very strong and complicated female character to prime time. NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt announced at the Television Critics Associations' semi-annual press tour. Much like Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope, the central character of the upcoming show is also expected to endear viewers with her high journey.
"The guy who brought Amy Poehler to prime-time is going to be bringing us another strong and very complicated lead female character. This is a high-concept comedy like nothing seen before about a woman wrestling with what it means to be good," Greenblatt said.
The Fey-Carlock series has been written by Tracey Wigfield, who was also a writer at "30 Rock". Fey and Carlock, who will produce the show, are still reeling from the success of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", so the best bet is to believe that the untitled new series would be one for the history books too.
As Greenblatt puts it, "The combination of Tina, Robert, and Tracey, we think, is about as good as it gets." The show is about an "up-and-coming millennial woman working at a cable news network where her mother happens to get a job after going back into the workplace".
After NBC dropped "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", Netflix gained by opting for it. Therefore, it is good to know that NBC had the good sense of trusting Tina Fey in giving the audience what they want. Her track record includes " Mean Girls" and "Baby Mama".
