New York: Bill Clinton will not be back on the TV screens any time soon as the former US President`s advisers have turned down a cameo role offered to him in the hit sitcom `30 Rock`.

The Democrat`s advisers rejected the part, specially written for him by the show`s star and writer Tina Fey, reported a newspaper daily.

The Emmy award winning actress wrote to Clinton`s representative Doug Band asking if the ex-politician would consider joining the cast of the hit TV show for the 100th episode, which is due to air next month.

But Clinton`s camp turned down the slot, and a spokesperson has now confirmed the former world leader wasn`t even told about the offer.

"The request was made and immediately denied without asking him," said the spokesperson.

The show has a great track record when it comes to cameos, including guest appearances by Al Gore, Oprah Winfrey and Calvin Klein.
