Watch Ellie Kemper stay positive in the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt trailer

23 January 2015 6:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The trailer for Tina Fey’s new comedy the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt arrived last night. It’s the new show that you may have heard of when NBC decided to pick it up only to shelf it, afterwich Netflix swooped in and grabbed it.

The show stars Ellie Kemper (The Office) as the lead character, Ellie Kemper, who’s rescued from a doomsday cult after spending a decade and a half in a bunker. Upon being brought back to the world as the rest of us know it, she decides she likes it better and commits to living in New York City. I can say I was hoping for this project to appeal to me more but the fact that it’s written by Fey should at least promise her trademark rapid-fire pop culture reference-style jokes. If one in five is as funny as the jokes on 30 Rock, it may »

StreamFix: 5 supergirls of TV and movies to stream right now

22 January 2015 5:18 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Look, the news of "Supergirl" and the new trailer for the Tina Fey-produced Netflix series "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" has got me riled. I've got to cope with these exciting developments by watching movies and TV featuring awesome, powerful, hilarious, and/or weird women. Here are five options for riiiiiight now. Go Netflix them! Go on! "The Fall": Gillian Anderson is patron saint of no-nonsense "The Fall" is a captivating British serial about a calculating, dead-eyed serial killer (Jamie Dornan, who is currently skulking about the dungeon in "Fifty Shades of Grey") and the detective in Northern Ireland named Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) who's onto him. Dornan's moody machinations are entrancing, but Anderson's understated authority propels this whole show. It's always creepy and occasionally very dark, but Stella is a feminist protagonist who is as comfortable theorizing about a woman-hating psychopath as she is exploring her own sexuality.  "30 Rock": Lemon In. »

Ellie Kemper Smiles and the Whole Trailer for Tina Fey’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Series Smiles With Her

22 January 2015 3:15 PM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you’ve been missing the NBC comedies 30 Rock and The Office, Netflix has what you’re looking for, and they’ll even let you watch it on Thursday nights, too. Tina Fey, who created and starred in the former show has a new TV series with 30 Rock showrunner Robert Carlock called Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and instead of returning to the Peacock network (where it was initially set to debut this Spring), it’s dropping on the online distributor’s streaming service on March 6th — all 13 episodes of the first season at once. And less than two months ahead, they’ve dropped a trailer for the show, which you can watch below. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt stars Ellie Kemper, one of the ensemble players from The Office, as a former member of an doomsday cult who is now trying to lead a normal life in the big city. She’s lived in an underground bunker before hitting New »

First Trailer Lands For Tina Fey And Robert Carlock’s Netflix Series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

22 January 2015 12:52 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Falling from NBC’s autumn slate might have been a blessing in disguise for apoca-comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Created by 30 Rock‘s Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, the show’s funnybone originates from the same type of acerbic wit that their seminal skit comedy nailed with aplomb. So, after the network omitted the series from their fall line-up, a deal was struck with global streaming giants, Netflix, which might actually prove to be a stronger choice in getting this sitcom before the right audience.

Up front in the lead as the happy-go-lucky Kimmy is Bridesmaids‘ star, Ellie Kemper. After years of surviving in an underground apocalypse cult with three other women, she is eventually rescued and begins a new life in New York City. The pitfalls are easy to spot, purely based on that synopsis. Fish out of water gags, silliness borne out of misunderstanding… the obvious direction of the »

10 30 Rock Jokes We Hope to See on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

22 January 2015 12:45 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This morning, the trailer for the upcoming Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt dropped, and it looks all-around adorable. With the writing duo of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock (otherwise known as the geniuses behind 30 Rock) at the helm and stars like Ellie Kemper and Jane Krakowski, the comedy about an apocalypse cultmember-turned New York City resident is bound to be on fire.  Today's teaser gives a glimpse of some of the show's highlights (and Kemper's perfectly-quirky demeanor), but we're also hoping for a bit of nostalgia out of Unbreakable. It's been almost two years since our beloved 30 Rock ended, and life just hasn't been the same without Liz Lemon and company. As such, it would be simply »

Is 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' Secretly a '30 Rock' Spinoff?

22 January 2015 10:50 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Finally, we have the first trailer for "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," the new Netflix sitcom from "30 Rock" dream team Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. The show follows the titular naif (Ellie Kemper) after she's sprung from an apocalypse cult and moves to New York City. Kemper is all wide grins and pollyanna proclamations in this first clip. Adorable. And yet, might this be a spinoff of a little-known, hilarious "30 Rock" character? Forget for a minute that Jane Krakowski is back playing a woman who resembles Jenna Maroney in her curtness and confident cluelessness. Kimmy Schmidt herself feels a lot like a lost "30 Rock" character. Remember this young, hopeful woman from season 6? There's more than a passing resemblance. Here's hoping she's strong enough to contend with New York City and (even more intimidatingly) Jane Krakowski's mad one-liner skills. "Kimmy" hits Netflix March 6. »

Netflix Debuts Tina Fey’s New Comedy Series Trailer

22 January 2015 10:38 AM, PST | | See recent Backstage news »

Netflix has debuted the trailer for its latest comedy series. Created by “30 Rock” duo Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” follows a young woman who has been living underground in a cult-created apocalypse shelter for 15 years. When she finds the world she thought had been obliterated is still intact, she heads out, invigorated… albeit with a few quirks as a result of being detached from the world for over a decade (i.e. an irrational fear of Velcro and an unrelenting doe-eyed optimism). The series stars Ellie Kemper (“The Office”), Tituss Burgess (“30 Rock”), Emmy winner Carol Kane, Jane Krakowski, and others.  With the recent Golden Globe win for Amazon series “Transparent,” (available to stream for free for 24 hours on Saturday, Jan. 24) television and streaming networks like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon are proving they’re the emerging frontier for innovative and risk-taking entertainment.  The full 13-episode season of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt »

Candy for Dinner Is Just One Delight in Tina Fey's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Trailer

22 January 2015 9:30 AM, PST | | See recent news »

[Youtube "mNKEKlXY3Z4"] Netflix released the trailer for its upcoming Tina Fey comedy, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and it's as winsome and weird as you might expect. Kimmy stars Ellie Kemper (The Office, Bridesmaids) in the title role as a 20-something liberated from a doomsday cult who learns that the apocalypse never actually happened and her entire life was based on lies. Fey's 30 Rock partner in comedy, Robert Carlock, is also behind the series, so it's no surprise a few familiar faces pop up among the eclectic oddballs Kimmy meets when she moves to New York, finds housing with a Times Square robot performer »

Netflix Releases Trailer For Tina Fey’s ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’

22 January 2015 9:04 AM, PST | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

What do you get when an ex-cult member spends a decade and a half underground to escape the End of Days before being let loose in the modern day Big Apple? The premise for Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schimdt, of course. The streaming video-on-demand company just released a two-minute trailer for its upcoming comedy series set for release on March 6, 2015.

The Kimmy Schmidt trailer starts off with a Swat team finding the apocalypse shelter of Kimmy (played by The Office’s Ellie Kemper). She and her fellow cult sisters are brought to New York City, where Kimmy decides to stay and make a life for herself despite being severely out-of-date after 15 years underground. The spunky redhead proceeds to find new roommates, get a job as a nanny for an upscale family, and naively yet wittily compliment a construction worker who’s trying to hit on her.

Here's the Wacky Trailer For Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Ellie Kemper's Netflix Series

22 January 2015 8:47 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt looks like no other Netflix series we've seen before. Ellie Kemper stars as a woman who has been rescued after living underground for 15 years in a doomsday cult. She moves to New York City, where she encounters typical Manhattan life (including a tiny apartment) and faces it all with an impossibly large smile on her face. The series also stars Jane Krakowski seemingly playing a variation of Jenna Maroney and is created by Tina Fey - but don't expect it to feel like 30 Rock. This looks a lot broader and wackier. We'll see if it pays off when the show is released on March 6! Until then, check out what's new on Netflix in February and find out when all Netflix's original series are premiering. »

Ellie Kemper Takes on NYC in 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' Trailer (Video)

22 January 2015 5:35 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The first trailer for Tina Fey's new Netflix comedy, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," has finally arrived, and proves that fans of Fey's former NBC sitcom "30 Rock" should feel right at home with the series.

Ellie Kemper stars as the titular character, a young woman who's been trapped in an underground bunker by a doomsday cult for 15 years. Finally broken free, Kimmy heads off to New York City to start over, and get reacquainted with life above ground.

Fey and "30 Rock" co-creator Robert Carlock are both producing "Kimmy," and the zany energy they brought to their former collaboration is all over this new series. In the trailer, we see Kimmy delight in living in someone's closet, freak out over velcro, and misunderstand a construction worker's catcalls; she begins nannying for a snooty socialite played by Jane Krakowski, who seems every bit a Jenna Maroney 2.0 as she explains that Kimmy may have »
