Tina Fey Coming Back To TV — And Landing On Fire Island

million-angels-high-fiveTina Fey’s coming back to TV!

If your primetime lives have been empty shells of what they once were following Tina’s departure from NBC, take heart: Fey and her 30 Rock cohort Robert Carlock, along with writer/producer Colleen McGuinness, are working on a new female-centric comedy for the peacock network that takes place on gay mecca Fire Island.

Fey will be an executive producer, but we also hope she’ll write and have a role on the show too! According to Deadline:

…the project, said to be in the vein of Cheers, is 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.

Fire Island, huh? What are the odds of calling it Queers? Either way, we’re bound to see a few LGBT characters and cameos. We can’t wait for Cheyenne Jackson to squeeze into his speedo as the scantily-clad houseboy we’re assuming will be part of the regular cast.

A gay icon in her own right, Fey has included several memorable homoments on 30 Rock, ranging from Jenna and Paul’s dragtastic romance to Frank’s crush on cougar Liz’s 20-something boy toy, and of course gay characters like D’Fwan:

And Devon Banks:

We feel the same way, Banks.

      Uh. There are 17 different communities on Fire Island it could just as well be set in the very straight Ocean Beach or the rich uptight Point of Woods as it could The Pines of Cherry Grove.
