Margaret Cho Joins Tina Fey’s New Fox Comedy

Comedian Margaret Cho will join 30 Rock pals Tina Fey and Matt Hubbard in their new untitled Fox comedy series, tentatively known as Cabot College. The series is about a women’s college that has just decided to start admitting men, and Cho, who won an Emmy for her portrayal of Kim Jong-il on 30 Rock, will play the university president. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cho’s character Laura Thibault, “made the difficult decision to admit men into the school. She’s further described as a divisive figure on campus and does her best to be welcoming of the male freshman but is often irritated by their antics.”

Following Fox’s recent announcement rejecting pilot season in favor of full-series orders for comedies, Cabot College already has a series commitment with the network. [Via Splitsider]
