Tina Fey’s 30 Rock followup series Cabot College won’t make it to freshman orientation, let alone graduation. Fox has declined to pick up the comedy after tentatively committing to a series order, ensuring it will never make it past the pilot phase. Cabot College was created by Fey and 30 Rock executive producer Robert Carlock, and was to be a fish-out-of-water comedy about the first class of men to attend a historically all-women’s college. (Sounds like there’s plenty of fish in that water, amiright fellas? *high fives, chest bumps*)
Margaret Cho and Fortune Feimster were set to star; Cho called the opportunity “a dream come true,” while Feimster referred to it as “a magical experience—one that both will unfortunately have to try to replicate elsewhere. But Fey won’t be disappearing from TV any time soon, thanks to NBC’s midseason order for her other series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, as well as to 30 Rock quickly replacing Seinfeld as the show that’s always on in syndicated reruns.
