Universal Follows Up Their Four Year Overall Deal with Tina Fey with a Two Year First Look Deal

(via The Wrap)

Tina Fey is going from having license to develop TV at Universal Television to having license to develop movies at Universal Pictures.

Back in 2012, Tina Fey signed a four year overall deal with Universal to develop series for them. Given all of her success in that realm, and then the success of Sisters, Fey, along with her production company Little Stranger, has gotten a whole new first look deal for the next two years that allows her to develop feature film projects for the studio. 

Already, she’s developing a comedy about three women who learn how to count cards based on a Good Housekeeping article “You Bet!” by Ruth Palmer.

Along this path, we wouldn’t be surprised if Tina Fey launched her own studio.
