Tina Fey is producing a new NBC series, and no, the show is not about girls who have been abducted, as was previously rumored. It was also believed that NBC wasn’t too thrilled with the script and was worried that it may be offensive. As it turns out, the series will tell the story of a woman who escaped a doomsday cult and is starting her life over in New York City. Insert sigh of relief. I’m not so sure a comedy about abduction would’ve been too funny.
Ellie Kemper, who played the hilarious Erin on “The Office,” will star in the series. Fey will write and produce the show with David Miner and Robert Carlock. The show will debut in fall 2014 — and we’re already excited. [Dallas Voice; Defamer; ABC News]
