Netflix Orders 8 Episodes of Comedy 'The Four Seasons' Created by and Starring Tina Fey

Netflix has today given a series order to the original comedy series The Four Seasons created by and starring Tina Fey (30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). Production on the 8-episode first season will begin later this year.

The series is based on the 1981 feature film of the same name from Universal Pictures that was written and directed by Alan Alda, produced by Martin Bregman, and starred Alda and Carol Burnett.

Fey co-created the comedy with Lang Fisher (Never Have I Ever) and Tracey Wigfield (Great News). They will executive produce with David Miner, Eric Gurian and Jeff Richmond. Alda and Marissa Bregman will serve as producers. Universal Television and Little Stranger, Inc. will produce.

Fey, Fisher and Wigfield previously worked together as writers on the final season of NBC's 30 Rock. Fey and Wigfield won an Emmy Award for co-writing the comedy's series finale. Moreover, Alda appeared as a recurring guest star on the series.

The Four Seasons will mark Fey's first live-action television series regular role since 30 Rock ended in 2013. Since then, she has recurred on Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, NBC's Great News, Amazon's Modern Love and Hulu's Only Murders in the Building. She recently appeared in the film A Haunting in Venice and wrote, produced and starred in the upcoming film Mean Girls, which is an adaptation of the Broadway musical.
