Emmy Breakout Ellie Kemper on Why Social Media Cruelty Might Break Kimmy Schmidt

25 June 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Consider This: Why 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' Star Jane Krakowski Would Do Anything For Tina Fey

22 June 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After working with Tina Fey and Robert Carlock for seven seasons on the seminal "30 Rock," Jane Krakowski had just one thing to say when asked if she was interested in joining the cast of their follow-up: "Yes." It wasn't until she started getting scripts, though, that she discovered the complexity of the character she was being asked to play: Socialite-with-secrets Jacqueline, whose superficial similarities to "30 Rock's" Jenna disappear from view after she hires Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) as a nanny and ends up finding her life forever changed. Read More: Review: 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' Takes The Charms of '30 Rock' To a Darker Place on Netflix Below, Krakowski tells Indiewire where her trust in Fey and Carlock came from, and why she's putting in extra hours at the gym before "Kimmy Schmidt" Season 2 starts shooting in August. So something that I find really interesting about it is the fact that you know [Fey and Carlock] wrote this. »

Jane Krakowski on Her New Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Life and Reaping the Benefits of "Peeno Noir"

18 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jane Krakowski stepped into a new, yet somewhat familiar world with Unbreakble Kimmy Schmidt ("Unbreakable! They're alive, damn it!"). Once again, she was working with 30 Rock's Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, but when the show moved from NBC to Netflix, it was a new ballgame for the four-time Emmy nominee (hey, let's make it five-time, TV Academy). "It was a very different experience," Krakowski said in a phone interview. 30 Rock came out on weekly basis, but Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt dropped all season one episodes at once. "This one felt a bit more like opening night in a sense...The show, I think, is very different and unique in tone and I think it was wonderful—one of the things I »

6 Questions With ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s’ Jane Krakowski: Emmy Contender Quickie

17 June 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

No one can accuse Jane Krakowski of lacking range. On her new Netflix sitcom “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” the 46-year-old actress plays the age-appropriate Jacqueline Voorhees — but also the 14-year-old version of the character in flashbacks. Krakowski is no stranger to the race for Supporting Actress – Comedy. She was nominated four times for her role as Jenna Maroney on the critically beloved “30 Rock,” but hasn’t been called to the ultimate podium yet. After re-teaming with Tina Fey and Robert Carlock for “Kimmy Schmidt,” perhaps this is Krakowski’s year. And if not, she’s perfectly happy just being invited as part of the. »

With E3 in full swing, it’s probably a good time for Sony to drop a new London poster, TV spot and ‘Arcade Characters’ featurette for the upcoming sci-fi comedy Pixels, which sees Adam Sandler leading a team of gamers in an effort to save the world from alien invaders who unleash iconic video game characters as weapons…

Ellie Kemper on playing 'optimistic' and 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' [Exclusive Video]

11 June 2015 4:44 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"It is optimistic, and that is one of the underlying themes. Bad things happen to people, but you can't curl up in a ball and die. You have to keep going," reveals Ellie Kemper when we chatted recently via webcam (watch below) about her new Netflix comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt." She plays the title character, a young woman rescued from a doomsday cult who starts a new life in New York City, sharing an apartment with a struggling actor (Tituss Burgess) and working as a nanny for a self-centered socialite (Jane Krakowski). "Here she is absent for 15 years in a situation that most people wouldn't be able to endure. Yet, she comes out of that with a smile on her face and a sense of wonderment and awe." -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders The series, a contender for Best Comedy at the upcoming TCA Awards, is »

Emmys Mvp: Merritt Wever deserves a goodbye hug for 'Nurse Jackie'

10 June 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Two years ago, Merritt Wever pulled off a big upset when she won Comedy Supporting Actress for her role as Zoey Barkow, friend and colleague to Edie Falco's character on "Nurse Jackie," over such favorites as Julie Bowen ("Modern Family") and Jane Krakowski ("30 Rock"). With the Showtime series ending this year, Wever has an episode that could easily win her trophy number two. -Break- Discuss 'Nurse Jackie' in our fun forums In "Serviam in Caritate," Zoey receives a phone call from Jackie's daughter Grace (Ruby Jerins) who is stuck at a rest stop in Pennsylvania.

Tina Fey: Tituss Burgess Sang Pinot Noir ‘On the Spot,’ Which Is Why He’s Awesome, Obviously

9 June 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On Sunday afternoon, the cast and crew of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt assembled for a For Your Consideration panel at the Silver Screen Theater in Los Angeles — that is, everyone except for Tituss Burgess, who couldn’t fly in because he was sick. That said, conversation still led to Burgess’s character, Titus Andromedon, a part written specifically with him in mind (which he still had to audition for). One audience member asked about the story behind “Pinot Noir,” Andromedon’s song he filmed in Jacqueline’s (Jane Krakowski's) apartment. “Are we going to have any more songs like that?” asked the audience member. “I’m sure we’ll have more songs,” said Tina Fey. "Carol, you can attest to how slapdash that was. It was made up on the spot." (Confirming what Burgess told us back in March.) Carol Kane, who plays Lillian, the landlady on the show, said, »

Moving Supporting TV Characters to Lead Roles is a Delicate Balance

9 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Earlier this year, Bob Odenkirk pulled off what many actors before him could not, transitioning his supporting character Saul Goodman from “Breaking Bad” into the lead of its spinoff show, “Better Call Saul.”

Prior to the show’s February premiere, there were doubts. Saul was a fun ancillary character, but could he carry a show on his own? Were people really interested in the backstory of a cheesy billboard attorney?

Judging by the ratings — the premiere set a record for the highest-rated scripted series premiere in cable history — the answer was a resounding yes.  But even more than eyeballs, the response from critics and “Breaking Bad” fans was overwhelmingly positive. People were interested, intrigued and, perhaps above all, relieved.

Saul isn’t the first character to do well striking out on his own; Kelsey Grammer was maybe sixth on the call sheet on “Cheers,” but as the star of “Frasier” walked away with five Emmys. »
