Fox Passes on Tina Fey-Produced Comedy ‘Cabot College’

The Fox network has taken a pass on the comedy “Cabot College,” produced by the “30 Rock” duo of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock for Universal Television.

Project from Universal TV had received a series commitment from Fox but never got a formal greenlight for production after the pilot was shot last spring. Matt Hubbard, another “30 Rock” alum, penned the script set at a women’s college that begins accepting men for the first time.

Asif Ali, Margaret Cho, Jack Cutmore-Scott and Bonnie Dennison toplined the pilot. It’s unclear if Universal TV plans to shop the project to other outlets.

Fey and Carlock also have a midseason order from NBC for the Ellie Kemper starrer “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”
