SHARE Tina Fey to produce new Fortune Feimster comedy at ABC

If you don’t who Fortune Feimster is, you’ll soon learn more about the actress and comic. A fixture on the E! late-night talk show “Chelsea Lately” (which ended a seven-year run in late August) and cast on Fox’s recently scuttled “Cabot College,” which was produced in part by Second City and iO Chicago alum Tina Fey, Feimster reportedly is set to star in a “semi-autobiographical comedy” for ABC. That’s according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Co-created by Feimster and former “30 Rock” writer Matt Hubbard, it’s “set in North Carolina, where Feimster grew up, and is based on her family life and stand-up comedy.”

Fey is also one of the producers on NBC’s “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Starring “The Office’s” Ellie Kemper, it’s slated to debut next spring.
