Video: Tina Fey Talks Her Parks and Rec Role (?!), Gives Very Early Scoop on Her Next TV Series

Tina FeyAs this video starts, Tina Fey seems to think she’s only going to be interviewed. But by the time it’s over, she’s sealed a deal to appear on Parks and Recreation.

Okay, so the “verbal agreement” that she makes with TVLine’s Michael Ausiello on the Emmy red carpet is probably not the most legally binding in the history of contracts. But she sure does seem agreeable to the idea of teaming up again on screen with her Golden Globes co-host, Amy Poehler.

Plus, before Ausiello makes the Emmy winner late for her opening bit with Poehler and Neil Patrick Harris, he gets her to reveal whether or not she’ll be appearing on a former 30 Rock cohorts’ new series (which she’s producing). So what are you waiting for? Press PLAY!

    It’s almost too bad they didn’t hire Tina Fey to be Leslie’s Eagleton double.

  2. What does Fey has to say about Cecily Strong now co-anchoring Weekend Update with Seth Meyers?

  3. Ace says:

    It’d be awesome if Tina Fey and Amy Poehler could star on a show together- I feel like that would make a post-Parks-and-Rec world a LOT brighter. But for now, I would LOVE to see her on Parks and Rec!

    • Elizabeth says:

      I have actually been thinking about this. I can see Tina writing something and it being filmed in New York so that Amy could finally get back to her city and that the two could work together again.

    • Lily says:

      Having Tina and Amy starring on a show together as the leading roles, would be perfection, they have chemistry, they’re funny and their friendship is famous enough to bring a bunch of people to watch this. If NBC wants a hit, they should think about teaming up the two funniest women of their network together in one show.

    I am 100% certain that trying to have a conversation with Tina Fey would turn me into a puddle on the ground. She’s amazing.

    Sidebar: The Emmys were actually entertaining in the 90 seconds that she and Poehler were doing their bit.

  5. Lily says:

    That would be awesome to see her on Parks and Rec, and a Fey/Poehler reunion on screen doesn’t hurt, and like she said: she’s available now. Make this happen, Michael, you have super powers to persuade people.

    Tina + Amy = <3
