The untitled project, known as Cabot College, takes place at a women's university that has just started admitting men for the first time.
Cho will play Laura Thibault, the divisive Cabot College president who wavers between welcoming the male freshmen and being irritated by them. Her commitment to the series marks a 30 Rock reunion with Fey and Matt Hubbard, who penned the Fox pilot and is an executive producer. Cho earned an Emmy nomination for her performance on the NBC comedy as Kim Jong-Il. Cho will still appear in the upcoming sixth season of Drop Dead Diva, which premieres sometime later this year.
Third Watch's Bonnie Dennison has also been cast as Thena, an uptight sophomore and passionate feminist who leads the charge against the male students. Broadway vet Jack Cutmore-Scott co-stars as the bourgeois Charlie Deckard, whose enrollment in the college upsets Thena. Fortune Feimster (Chelsea Lately) and Brandon Jones (CSI)will also star
The untitled comedy will begin production in March and already has a series commitment.
