Brace yourselves, Liz Lemon fans, because Tina Fey is going to have a new sitcom on television.

The 30 Rock star was just given the official green light from Fox for a new multi-camera comedy series. Not much is known about the still-untitled show, but it is reportedly set at a women's college that has opened its doors to men for the first time. Sadly, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Fey will not be starring in the sitcom.

The show ended up on Fox after the network won a bidding war with NBC, the former home of 30 Rock, which is undoubtedly eager to keep Fey's talent for themselves.

The show reunites some of the 30 Rock production team including Fey, Robert Carlock and Matt Hubbard, who also wrote the script. It will be directed by Pam Fryman, who spent nine season working on How I Met Your Mother.



The project is the second success for Fey's Little Stranger production company. Earlier this year the company sold another sitcom written by Fey to NBC. The show, which is still in development, stars The Office's Ellie Kemper as a woman who escapes a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York City. NBC has ordered 13 episodes of the series, which is set to premiere in the fall of 2014.

Since there's no such thing as too much Tina, you can also catch Fey as she co-hosts the Golden Globe Awards with Amy Poehler on Sunday, Jan. 12.
