NBC Orders Pair of New Sitcoms from Mike Schur and Tina Fey

NBC on Thursday announced two new comedies from a group of very familiar creatives forces.

First up is A Good Place from Parks and Recreation creator Mike Schur, network president Bob Greenblatt revealed at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. Though further details were unavailable, Greenblatt described the comedy as being about “a woman wrestling with what it means to be good.”

Additionally, Tina Fey and Robert Carlock will be producing a yet-untitled sitcom — created by Tracy Wigfield, who won an Emmy for writing the 30 Rock series finale — which is described as a “slightly autobiographical comedy about an up-and-coming millennial woman working at a cable news network where her meddling mother gets a job.”

Schur’s project is being given a straight-to-series order, Greenblatt later clarified, while Fey and Carlock are merely filming a pilot.
