Tina Fey's pilot for a brand new comedy series has been green lit by Fox executives.

The upcoming pilot reunites Tina Fey with Matt Hubbard, who she worked with on 30 Rock, and Robert Carlock, who is rumoured for a part on the show.

How I Met Your Mother director, Pam Fryman, will oversee the project.

Fey's new show is a multicamera comedy that takes place at a women's college that begins to accept men for the first time in its existence.

Fey is also producing the NBC programme Tooken, which will star Ellie Kemper as a former member of a doomsday cult who breaks free by moving to New York.
