Tina Fey Teams With Chelsea Lately Comedian For New ABC Comedy

TinaFeyFortune (1)

Upper Darby’s Tina Fey and former Chelsea Lately comedian Fortune Feimster are teaming up for an autobiographical TV series based on Feimster’s life. The two previously worked together on the pilot for Cabot College, a sitcom about a women’s college that begins admitting men. It was set to star Feimster and Margaret Cho and be produced by Fey and 30 Rock’s Matt Hubbard and Robert Carlock, but, as we reported in August, the pilot was passed on by Fox.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pair’s untitled new project also has the 30 Rock alums attached. Feimster and Hubbard are co-creators; Hubbard will write the script and executive produce alongside Fey, Carlock and 3 Arts’ David Miner.

We couldn’t be more excited for Feimster’s new project. When we spoke with the funny lady last month, she described working with Tina Fey as a great experience, saying, “She’s a good person to have in your corner.” With Fey’s TV magic and with Feimster’s comedy already taking inspiration from her real life—even her role in Cabot College was based on her time as a three-sport college athlete—we can’t wait to see where this project goes.

Five Real Philly Housewives We Want to See on Bravo

real_housewives_logo-940

The strangest thing about “Real Housewives” — after the fact that we watch it, we watch it so hard — is that the franchise never set up shop here since debuting in 2006. For a show that lives and dies by its batshit quotient, you’d think they would have made Philadelphia home years ago.

That, however, might be about to change: As the Daily News’ Jenice Armstrong reports, producer Princess Ann Banton-Lofters — creator of the series’ gold-standard Atlanta version — has been in town scouting, for lack of a better word, talent.

Presumably, Bravo is poking around the Main Line and Rittenhouse for their usual mix of old money, new money and hopefully-results-in-jail-time money.

But that would be a mistake.

WATCH: Bradley Cooper Plays Egg Russian Roulette On The Tonight Show

Bradley Cooper stopped by The Tonight Show last night, where he chatted with host Jimmy Fallon about his upcoming Broadway show, The Elephant Man, and working with Jennifer Lawrence again on a film called Serena. In the second part of the interview, Fallon handed Cooper a visor with a wild-haired wig attached to it making fun of a much-laughed-about appearance Cooper made this week at the Heathrow airport in London. Then they just laughed a lot.

WATCH: Did You See Patti LaBelle’s Debut on American Horror Story: Freak Show This Week?

Philly soul queen Patti LaBelle made her debut on American Horror Story: Freak Show this week, playing a maid to Frances Conroy’s Gloria Mott and her bratty son Dandy (Finn Wittrock.)

LaBelle’s character is classic Patti: sassy and straight-talking all the way. While she hasn’t made any big moves yet, early reports about the show suggest she will appear in four episodes, where she will work to solve the mystery of Twisty the Clown Killer (played so creepily by John Carroll Lynch.)

Check out her entrance above.
