By Daniel S Levine,

Jack Donaghy may be leaving NBC, but Alec Baldwin isn’t going anywhere. Baldwin signed a two-year overall deal with the network and Universal Television.

The deal will have Baldwin develop and produce projects for Universal, reports Deadline. Baldwin could also star in one of the new shows.

Baldwin’s 30 Rock co-star Tina Fey also signed an overall deal with the network. Fey’s deal will last for four years.

Baldwin has starred as Jack Donaghy on Fey’s 30 Rock since it premiered in 2006 and has earned two Emmys for his role as the network executive. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Baldwin became a co-producer on the show in 2008. It will end its seven-year run with an hour-long finale on Jan. 31.

The actor has hinted that he might leave the business to pursue “more of a normal life” and has a weekly radio show called Here’s The Thing that airs on WNYC.

He recently starred in Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love and is starring in Allen’s 2013 film. He also voiced a character in Rise of the Guardians. In addition to two Emmys, 30 Rock earned him six Screen Actors Guild awards and three Golden Globes.
