On the heels of massive sitcom success story, 30 Rock, Tina Fey is set to executive produce a new female-centric, half-hour comedy for the folks at NBC. The project doesn't have a name yet, but it's said to be coming from Fey's Little Stranger production company.

Fellow 30 Rock writer-producer Colleen McGuinness is set to write and executive produce the series, which will reportedly have a bit of Cheers flare to it.

NBC has bought an untitled comedy from 30 Rock writer-producer Colleen McGuinness, which is being executive produced by Fey and Carlock through Universal Television, where both are based. Written and executive produced by McGuinness, the project, said to be in the vein of Cheers, is a character-driven workplace comedy where a young woman in search of reconnecting with her father finds a new home and family on Fire Island. This marks the first project from Fey’s Little Stranger production company under the four-year deal she inked with Uni TV last fall.
