Tina Fey has another show in the works for NBC

Although 30 Rock is really and truly over, having answered its central mystery of “What is the island?” back in January (answer: Manhattan), Tina Fey is producing another NBC show that could potentially fill the void. Fey, her 30 Rock co-showrunner Robert Carlock, and 30 Rock writer-producer Colleen McGuinness have just sold the network another “female-centered workplace project”—one described as “in the vein of Cheers,” which we guess means beer will be served, maybe. What we do know for certain is that it’s about a young woman trying to reconnect with her estranged father, which leads her to discover “a new home and family on Fire Island.” Of course, given Fire Island’s long history as a comedic shorthand for the gay community, you can probably extrapolate what that means: That on this show, everything is constantly on fire. Can this young woman truly have it all, before it’s all reduced to cinder?
