I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a two minute trailer for a half-hour comedy series before and it’s sort of an odd experience. There’s lots of good jokes in this Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt trailer, but they come at you so non-stop you kind of wish you were watching the actual show already so that the natural plot and pacing could meter them out. Still, if you’re a fan of 30 Rock this looks to be very much in the tone of that show, as it should with creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock onboard.
Unbreakable Kimmy Shmidt stars Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski, Lauren Adams, Sara Chase, Sol Miranda and Carol Kane. All thirteen episodes will premiere on Netflix on March 6th. Check out the trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt:
After living in a cult for fifteen years, Kimmy (Ellie Kemper – The Office) decides to reclaim her life and start over in New York City. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, and a couple of way-past-due library books, she’s ready to take on a world she didn’t even think existed anymore. Wide-eyed but resilient, nothing is going to stand in her way. She quickly finds a new job (working for 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski), a new roommate (Tituss Burgess – 30 Rock), and a new beginning. The cast also includes Lauren Adams, Sara Chase, Sol Miranda and Emmy winner Carol Kane (Taxi, The Princess Bride).
The series was created by Tina Fey (30 Rock) and Robert Carlock (30 Rock), who serve as executive producers along with Jeff Richmond (30 Rock), Jack Burditt (30 Rock, The Mindy Project) and David Miner (30 Rock, Brooklyn Nine-Nine).
