NBC has purchased the rights to a new comedy that is executive-produced by 30 Rock writers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.

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.
