(Newser) – Good news, Tina Fey fans: The 30 Rock star is producing a new sitcom, and NBC just gave it a rare straight-to-series order for 13 episodes to premiere next fall. The as-yet-untitled single-camera comedy stars The Office star Ellie Kemper, Variety reports. It's about a woman starting over in New York after escaping a doomsday cult. "We have been lucky enough to work at NBC for our entire careers (except when Robert worked at The Dana Carvey Show, now available on DVD) and we thank Bob [Greenblatt] and Jen [Salke] for their continued support," say Fey and co-producer Robert Carlock in a statement, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Awesome. I was just rewatching all the seasons of 30 Rock. I want to see Alec Baldwin and Tina working together again, they are an amazing duo.

TRUTH BE TOLD.... Every time I tried to watched her show, I kept thinking of her great looking impersonation of Sarah Palin .. and lost my concentration on her show.... really.
