Tina Fey to Britney Spears: Come to 30 Rock!

by at . Comments

After Britney Spears' not entirely terrible, image-boosting appearance helped CBS' How I Met Your Mother earn its highest ratings of all time Monday, another hit sitcom reportedly has its sights set on a guest role for the pop singer.

Executive producer, creator and star Tina Fey says she wouldn't mind if Britney Spears popped up on her hilarious, hit NBC series 30 Rock.

"We would love to work with Britney Spears," Fey said. "I've worked with her twice on Saturday Night Live and she was very professional and nice."

Britney Spears would be on 30 Rock if Tina Fey had her way. Of course, that would require them not to mock Spears (a la South Park) ... which may be a tall order.

Fey also has her eyes set on another A-lister: Oprah.

"I want Oprah to play my best friend," Fey said. "I want to spend time with Oprah Winfrey, and I don't know what I need to do to make it happen."

30 Rock returns April 10 with new episodes following the writers' strike. Getting back to work wasn't easy, Tina Fey admitted.

"The strike was a bit like the maternity leave that I didn't have, except for my duties on the union line," said Fey, who has a daughter Alice, 2. "Now my daughter is old enough to say, ‘You don't go to work, you stay inside.' That breaks my heart."

I guess 30 Rock must be hurting for ratings.

Britney has always been professional and nice. She had a nervous breakdown, she was given drugs by Sam behind her back, etc. Anybody in her shoes would have lost it. Good to see her getting help and back on track, Wish her the best.
