We guess it was unlikely that NBC would snap up both of Tina Fey's new sitcoms. It's for the best. Everyone knows they produce more failed pilots than the French air force. While Fey's doomsday cult comedy is headed over to NBC, Fox has officially ordered a pilot for the multi-cam pitch she co-created with Matt Hubbard and Robert Carlock, which as you might recall is about the first class of male students at a women's college. How I Meet Your Mother's Pam Fryman will direct and executive produce, an idea we absolutely peacock. No, sorry. We fox it. We fox that idea very much.
