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).

To pick up an issue of The New Yorker is to prepare for a meaty three-course meal. The short, often colorful news pieces near the issue’s start, are the appetizer. The comprehensive, 10,000-word profiles and investigative pieces in the middle are the rich main course. The short story and the cultural criticism in the back, easy to digest and filled with savory analysis, are its desserts.
If one wanted to subscribe to the highbrow publication but only wanted to go through one or two courses – or, to take the metaphor even further, take little bites of everything – then, they may be better off tuning into one of Amazon’s newest pilots, The New Yorker Presents. The half-hour is programmed like a magazine, even starting off with a table of contents previewing the films and features that will play during the episode. The material in this pilot connects with both »
