The peacock network has ordered straight-to-series 13 episodes of a new untitled comedy from Fey and her producing partner Robert Carlock that will star "The Office" alum Ellie Kemper.
(Yep, you're reading correctly: Fey will be behind the camera on this one.)
The single-camera comedy is to debut next fall and will center on a woman (Kemper) who escapes a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York.
Fey and Carlock, who was an executive producer on "30 Rock," will write, executive-produce and co-run the half-hour series.
Fey recently signed on to return as co-host of the Golden Globes, along with Amy Poehler, for the next two years.
