tina feyAt Sunday’s SAG Awards, seven-time Emmy Award winner Tina Fey, who wrote the Mean Girls screenplay, told E! News that a Mean Girls musical is on her to-do list after her NBC series, “30 Rock,” concludes on Jan. 31.

“I’m trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for ‘30 Rock’ and I think Paramount’s onboard,” Fey said during a red-carpet interview just before her win for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.

Based on the book Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman, Mean Girls follows Cadt Heron and her run-in with a clique of popular girls, known as the Plastics. The film was written by Fey and starred Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, Amanda Seyfried and Lizzy Caplan.

“Mean Girls” is, to date, the only movie screenplay credit.
