There was never any doubt Ellie Kemper and Tina Fey’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt would return for Season 2, but the wait feel suspiciously like being kept in an underground bunker. Thankfully, Netflix is alive, dammit, enough to give us the miracle of a Season 2 premiere date this coming April.
The variety show has historically proven a tough sell in recent years, but NBC certainly isn’t giving up, and Neil Patrick Harris might well be the man to make it work. The first promos for NPH’s Best Time Ever have arrived, featuring the likes of HIMYM alum Cobie Smulders, Jane Krakowski, ziplining and much more.
Netflix snapped up one of NBC’s surely-doomed sitcoms in that of ‘30 Rock’ star Tina Fey’s ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,’ already renewing the Ellie Kemper apocalypse comedy for a second year. The first trailer for the new series has arrived, but did Netflix make the right call in picking up NBC’s loss?
Netflix keeps adding to its reputation as a savior of cancelled shows, most recently picking up a fourth season of ‘Longmire’ after A&E’s cancellation, but their latest acquisition proves even notably weirder. Prior to ever even airing on NBC, Tina Fey-Ellie Kemper comedy ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ has set a March 2015 premiere on Netflix, where the show has been picked up for two full seasons.
ABC's monster Emmy-gobbler 'Modern Family' has never had difficulty reeling in celebrity guests, but its latest are equal parts welcome and surprising. 'Now You See Me' and 'The Social Network' star Jesse Eisenberg will drop by for an upcoming episode, along with '30 Rock' gem Jane Krakowski, and John Benjamin Hickey.
