Tina Fey’s Little Stranger production company has signed a first-look deal with Universal Pictures. Dateline Hollywood reports that the deal already has several projects in the works, including “Do Nothing B*tches“, a film Fey will star alongside MMA fighter Rhonda Rousey, and You Bet!, a film where Fey plays one of three women who learn to count cards in Atlantic City during a financial crises.
Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley announced the deal. “With her trademark wit, unparalleled voice and business acumen, Tina has found success on nearly every platform—both in front of and behind the camera,” said Langley. “She is a comedic icon whose fearless commitment to her craft has made her one of the entertainment industry’s most in-demand talents. We could not be more fortunate now that we are able to call Universal her home.”
Universal has been good ground for Fey and helped produce several projects, including recent film Sisters, plus Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. Congratulations Tina!
