"30 Rock" star Tina Fey is returning to her old stomping grounds for an upcoming "Saturday Night Live" primetime special.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fey – who won a Creative Arts Emmy for portraying Sarah Palin in several 2008 specials – will join pals and fellow alums Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch for "The Women of SNL," a two-hour special that will air November 1 on NBC from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Besides a roundup of clips from seasons past, the show will also feature brand-new skits starring funny ladies who have been part of the 35-year-old series' cast, including Laraine Newman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Nora Dunn, Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, Cheri Oteri, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig.
Hmm… how about a "DWTS" sketch featuring Fey as Palin and Wiig as daughter Bristol? Stay tuned…
