Los Angeles: Actress-creator Tina Fey is reuniting with her "30 Rock" showrunner Robert Carlock for an upcoming comedy pilot, which will air on NCB network.

It is described as a female-driven half-hour comedy and inspired by the life of "30 Rock" casting director Tracey Wigfield, who also wrote the untitled pilot, reported Aceshowbiz.

The project revolves around a mother-daughter relationship that is challenged when an overly involved New Jersey mom gets an internship at her daughter's workplace, a cable news network.

"Tina and Robert are two of the pre-eminent voices in comedy, and we couldn't be more thrilled that they're bringing their next project to NBC," said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke in a statement.

"We also adore Tracey, who has written some brilliant episodes of both '30 Rock' and 'The Mindy Project'. With this super-talented trio at the helm, we're eagerly looking forward to their next great show."
