NBC has ordered thirteen episodes of a new sitcom from Tina Fey and 30 Rock co-mastermind Robert Carlock, the network announced today. The Office's Ellie Kemper is set to star as a woman who moves to New York upon escaping from a doomsday cult. The still-untitled show will debut in the fall of 2014, which is plenty of time to light candles at a variety of Liz Lemon shrines and altars and pray for a good show. Please, television gods, let this be even half as good as it sounds.
