NBC has ordered 13 episodes of a new comedy starring THE OFFICE’s Ellie Kemper and written by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock about a woman “who escapes from a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York City.”

“We have been lucky enough to work at NBC for our entire careers (except when Robert worked at ‘The Dana Carvey Show,’ now available on DVD) and we thank Bob and Jen for their continued support,” said Fey and Carlock in a statement.

“Tina and Robert, who cemented their partnership on ‘30 Rock,’ have created a new signature comedy for us that is audacious, emotional, and clever,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “While tapping into very relatable themes, there isn’t anything like this anywhere else on television. NBC has been their home for many years and we’re so happy that they’ve found another way to push the comedy envelope for us.”

“Original voices like Tina and Robert don’t come along very often and we wanted them back on the air as soon as possible,” added Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “And to have them working with Ellie Kemper — who we watched grow up on ‘The Office’ from supporting player to leading actress — puts the whole package together. We feel fortunate to be in business with this entire creative team on something so funny, unique, and attention-getting.”
