After blessing us with the hilarious sketch comedy show “30 Rock” and the latest Netflix breakout sitcom, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” Tina Fey is at it again –because, she’s the queen of comedy.

Tina Fey, along with screenwriter Robert Carlock (“Friends,” “30 Rock”) and screenwriter/producer Jack Burditt (“The Mindy Project,” “Frasier”), are developing a pilot for an unnamed CBS comedy show.

The script, written by Burditt, follows an athlete who unexpectedly retires and somehow drives his family and friends insane. While we don’t have any details beyond that, we’re predicting this new comedy will be an Emmy contender in the future. The talented trio have worked on over 30 series and films throughout their careers. And, Fey and Carlock are already a dynamic duo in their own right. They executive produced NBC’s 30 Rock” together and were the creators of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Burditt wrote and executive produced for both of those shows and also created the current CBS comedy, “Last Man Standing.”

One thing that did strike us as odd is that this show will live on CBS instead of NBC. For reasons unknown, CBS won the bid and will definitely reap the benefits from this new show.
