Tina Fey is clearing a few things up about the rumoured “30 Rock” reboot.
The actress, comedian, and TV creator appeared on “The Tonight Show” Thursday where host Jimmy Fallon asked her about the news that there have been discussions about reviving her beloved sitcom.
Fey explained that she was asked about the possibility of a “30 Rock” reboot on the red carpet for the new “Mean Girls” musical on Broadway and that she had responded, “Maybe,” in a manner suggesting it might actually happen.
“I must be so thirsty for internet attention,” Fey told Fallon.
“We’re trying to think of a way to do something,” she admitted, adding that it could take the form of a “Muppet Babies”-style prequel, or a dystopian sci-fi series about robot sex.
Fallon also had Fey participate in a bit of fan interaction, surprising them as they stood in front of a poster for the “Mean Girls” musical, and talked about what the former star of Global’s “Saturday Night Live” meant to them.
“I was doing it all for selfish reasons,” Fey told one crying fan, who had written a college application essay about her. When the fan said her friends would never believe this, Fey pointed out, “They will because we filmed it.”
Also on the show, Fey presented the premiere of her young daughters’ short film “Butt Show”.
The film features several character introductions done with shots of Barbie dolls’ rear ends; Fey joked that Netflix has already picked it up for a 100-episode TV series.
