Tracey Wigfield Signs New Overall Deal With Universal TV

Wigfield was a producer on “30 Rock” and “The Mindy Project”

“30 Rock” producer Tracey Wigfield has signed a new multi-year overall deal with Universal Television, a spokesperson for the studio told TheWrap.

This is Wigfield’s latest deal with the studio, for which she created and starred in the NBC series “Great News.”

Wigfield appeared as an actor in one episode of “30 Rock” — she also won an Emmy alongside star Tina Fey for the series finale, which they wrote together.

She played recurring character Lauren Neustadter on “The Mindy Project,” on which she was also a producer, and also acted in “Great News” as the character Beth Vierk.

“I’m so excited to be able to continue my partnership with Universal, the studio that has been my home since the start of my career,” Wigfield said. “I love working with Pearlena and her amazing, supportive team. Also, I really like the Universal commissary, especially when they have the baked potato bar.”

“Yes, Tracey is wildly talented and collaborative. And yes, she’s a great storyteller who makes us laugh and cry. But, the best thing about Tracey is that she’s a nice girl from New Jersey who has introduced us all to her mom. We’re looking forward to continuing our relationship with both,” said Universal TV president Pearlena Igbokwe.

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to break the news.
