However, that wasn't always the case. Yes, there are shared actors, like Jane Krakowski, who played Jenna on 30 Rock, is Jacqueline on Kimmy Schmidt. Fey, Judah Friedlander and Scott Adist, series regulars on 30 Rock, also appear in season three of Kimmy Schmidt, but there was almost one scene in the new season that would've tied the two shows together in a big way that was scrapped at the last »

But Judah’s not the kind of guy who’s going to sit down and write an op-ed about it. He’s also not going to do months of research and write an academic paper. He’s going to watch all of this stuff first hand. At least that’s what his funny new 8 series show is going to do. According to Av Club Normally, the best way to get
