Fear not, 30 Rock fans, Tiny Fey is creating a new comedy series that is likely to satisfy the craving for her special brand of humor.

The upcoming show, which so far does not have a name, will star Ellie Kemper of The Office as a woman who seeks a fresh start in New York City after escaping from a doomsday cult.

NBC has ordered 13 episodes of the series created by Fey, 43, and Robert Carlock, who was an executive producer of 30 Rock.

The show is “audacious, emotional and clever,” says Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment in a statement by the network.

The comedy will premiere in the fall of 2014, but if that’s too long to wait, watch out for Fey as co-host of the Golden Globe Awards, where she’ll be teaming up again with Amy Poehler on Sunday, Jan. 12.
