30 Rock is ending. Parks and Recreation is probably ending. They just hosted the Golden Globes together to huge fanfare. What’s next for Tina and Amy? We couldn’t help but fantasize about potential comedy show plots featuring these two as the leading characters!

Although Tina is rumored to be a part of The Muppets sequel, we haven’t heard much about Amy. Either way we want to see them work together again in the future. Here are some interesting concepts for potential comedy shows brought to you by some of the Hypable staff and some of my close friends who are also huge Tina and Amy fans like myself!

“Terrible Cops”

Yes, this has already been done with Reno 911, we know. But, how hilarious would it be for these two to be cop partners who are bad at their jobs?! We don’t think Tina and Amy would go for the aloof-female-cop comedy but it would be fun nonetheless! Thanks to my friend Lauren for this one.

“Cowgirls”

Hypable writer Selina came up with this one! A half-hour comedy set in a historical setting? Say, the Civil War? That hasn’t been done before (or has it?). Could you imagine Amy and Tina portraying characters struggling with the lifestyles of the 1800s? If anyone could pioneer this type of genre it would be Amy and Tina! Any scenario where either of them could be potentially thrown from a horse seems like comedy gold!

Tina and Amy as lesbian parents

Think The New Normal but with Amy and Tina! With Modern Family paving the way for exposing different, non-traditional households, this seems to fall right in to that line of thinking. Both Modern Family and The New Normal feature gay men as the parents but maybe it’s time to consider some lesbian parents, too! It might be hard for two best friends to portray a couple, but Amy and Tina have no boundaries when it comes to comedy. Great idea from Hypable writers Sonya and Michal!

Tina and Amy making it as female comedians in a male-dominated industry, working title: “Second City”

One great thing about this concept, brought to us by Hypable writer Gabrielle, is that it would give them an open book to basically put them in any scenario you could imagine! We’d love to see them getting into crazy scenarios throughout Chicago where the comedy club The Second City is located.

“Divorced Roommates”

This one I thought up while chatting with some friends. What if Amy and Tina are middle-aged, divorced and forced to move in together? It would be the ultimate roommate comedy. With the success of New Girl, Girls and even Glee, the roommate comedy is making a comeback!

Do you have an idea you think would work really well for Amy and Tina? Pitch your show idea in the comments section below!

    I appreciate the general project this article undertakes, but these women deserve some more original concepts than these.

    Tina recently said that NBC would be making a mistake by moving away from the “niche comedies” that have dominated in recent years. Given Fey’s role in NBC comedies moving forward, I’m anxiously awaiting some great sitcoms in the vein of Parks and Rec or 30 Rock. Together these women could come up with some great concepts.

      I agree completely. Tina and and Amy would make for a great show together, but not with any oth the options above which feel like ideas that NBC and their new broad comedy loving exec would green light, though.

      I also find a lot of these concepts troubling because they are primairly centered on their femaleness. Amy and Tina deserve to portray characters whose defining traits aren’t their gender.

    Parks & Rec “probably ending?” I think that’s a little dramatic. It’s probably got another year left before NBC finishes demolition on its classic Thursday “Comedy Night, Done Right” (that was the slogan, right?)

      Recent quotes from NBC’s Greenblatt at TCA’s allude to it “probably ending” but it was just an opinion :)

        “Probably ending” being my quote not his. #confusion

        • Jessica

          Can you link to what you’re referring to? Because I read stuff from TCA and I didn’t get that vibe.

            I’m not doubting you, but I’m just curious now that maybe my interpretation of what’s going on is too optimistic but isn’t this a the very least a “possibly”, not a “probably”?:

            “I hate to sort of predict, because it’s a long way between now and
            May, but we love Parks and Rec and we love Amy Poehler and that whole
            cast . We love what Time Magazine said about it. We love what critics
            say about the show. And I’m hopeful that it goes on and on. Same with
            Community. But anything can happen between now and the end of the
            [season].”

            Sorry to comment again, I just love Parks and Rec so much and want to figure what what’s going to happen.

            Here’s a little snippet but it’s the general consensus from other quotes from NBC people: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2013/01/06/nbc-chief-more-confident-about-parenthood-being-renewed-than-parks-recreation/164114/

      I just finished the first 4 seasons on Netflix! Disappointed in the low ratings.

    I like the Lesbian Parents one
