The still-untitled series, led by former “30 Rock” writer Colleen McGuiness, is described as 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.” The show will be produced by Fey’s new production company, Little Stranger, reports Deadline.

McGuinness worked as a writer, producer and story editor on a handful of shows (including the NBC hospital drama “Mercy”) before joining “30 Rock” for the acclaimed comedy’s sixth season. “30 Rock” concluded its seventh and final season in January.

For Fey, a mother of two with a blooming film career, the producer role seems like a good fit. In a Rolling Stone cover profile on the end of 30 Rock, series star Alec Baldwin said Fey appeared to be “wiped out” by the show’s draining schedule.
