‘30 Rock’ Executive Producers Reteam With
Network on Singlecam Series to Debut in Fall
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – October 31, 2013 – NBC
has ordered 13 episodes of a new singlecam
comedy from multiple Emmy Award winners Tina Fey
and Robert Carlock. Ellie Kemper is set to star.
Produced by Universal Television and Little
Stranger, Inc., and set to debut in fall 2014,
the series will center on a woman (Kemper) who
escapes from a doomsday cult and starts life
over in New York City.
“We have been lucky enough to work at NBC for
our entire careers (except when Robert worked at
‘The Dana Carvey Show,’ now available on DVD)
and we thank Bob and Jen for their continued
support.” said Fey and Carlock.
“Tina and Robert, who cemented their partnership
on ‘30 Rock,’ have created a new signature
comedy for us that is audacious, emotional, and
clever,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC
Entertainment. “While tapping into very
relatable themes, there isn’t anything like this
anywhere else on television. NBC has been their
home for many years and we’re so happy that
they’ve found another way to push the comedy
envelope for us.”
Added Jennifer Salke, President, NBC
Entertainment: “Original voices like Tina and
Robert don’t come along very often and we wanted
them back on the air as soon as possible. And to
have them working with Ellie Kemper — who we
watched grow up on ‘The Office’ from supporting
player to leading actress — puts the whole
package together. We feel fortunate to be in
business with this entire creative team on
something so funny, unique, and
Fey and Carlock, who will serve as writers for
the series, will executive produce with David
Fey, who created and executive produced the
critically beloved NBC comedy “30 Rock,”

for co-writing the series finale episode, “Last
Lunch.” As an actress, writer and executive

Finale of '30 Rock'
We hope you are well! The "30 Rock" series
finale airs tomorrow, and Comcast's Xfinity TV
got a chance to sit down with Jack McBrayer to
talk about the end of the show, his final days
of shooting and his fondest memories. In the

wants to remember from his last days on set: the
last time he heard Alec Baldwin yelling about
how hot the studio was, the last time Jane
Krakowski cried over her wardrobe, and even his
last Kenneth the Page haircut.
In the interview, Jack also opens up about
shooting his final scene and the mementos he
received from a goody bag of props (including an
NBC page jacket). Jack jokes, "It was a nice
little piece of Kenneth memorabilia. Plus, I can
wear it to my job interviews at several
restaurants in town. I do hope my path will
cross again with everyone I worked with on '30
Rock' but I could use the jacket to look good
when I'm clearing away Jane Krakowsi's martini

Quotes: On his "30 Rock" experience:
Tracy Morgan: "Seven seasons...I enjoyed working
with all the people on there...Tina, Alec, Jane,
Jack, Judah, Grizz and Dot Com. It was so real.
Towards the end...things start to flash before
you---the refrigerator that was in craft
service, the grip that was there from the
beginning....when we ended [there
were]...[over]...40... people...[who started
when the show began]... that stayed, and that
was what was awesome about that show. Because
usually people go their own way during the year,
but we had [over] 40 people, [including] grips
and cameramen, that were there from day one. I
remember doing the pilot and the very first day
the director said action."
SiriusXM NFL Radio host Adam Schein: "How do you
guys keep a straight face during [filming]? The
writing is so brilliant...[and] hysterical."
Tracy Morgan: "You got to play it straight, man.
I learned that from Will Ferrell being on SNL.
Play it straight, man. That's [what's] funny.
Those writers on 30 Rock never ran out of ideas.
We could have gone another seven seasons...they
conspired...at night to make...people laugh. And
they came up with a great cast, and we all got
along, so it was all chemistry. You can have a
team full of talent, but if you don't have Phil
[Jackson] there to make it gel, you don't win
six championships in Chicago."

to have a cheat sheet where I know what size all
celebrities will be so I can be prepared" Alec
on the Oscar-nominated Amour: "I loved Amour...
and I love Trintignant who is a great leading
man. I mean Trintignant to me is like the Colin
Firth-- so elegant and urbane and so smart and
so handsome. I idolize Colin Firth, he is a guy
out there now who I really, really love. I loved
King's Speech." Alec on not attending Golden
Globes: "I'm glad that I'm going to be home

show... the two of them are going to be great."

March 8 (9-10 p.m. ET).
In “Do No Harm,” Dr. Jason Cole (Steven
Pasquale, "Rescue Me") is a highly respected
neurosurgeon who has it all – a lucrative
career, confident charm, the gift of compassion.
But he also has a deep, dark secret. One morning
when he wakes up disoriented in a wrecked hotel
room amidst several near-naked women he's never
seen before, he knows one thing: it's happening
again. Every night at the same hour, something
inside Jason changes, leaving him almost
unrecognizable – seductive, devious, borderline
This new man is his dangerous alternate
personality who goes by the name of “Ian Price.”
For years he's battled Ian, keeping him in check
with a powerful experimental sedative. But now
his – their – body has developed a resistance to
the serum, setting Ian free once again. And to
make matters worse, after being suppressed for
so long, Ian's hell-bent on taking revenge on
his oppressor. With everyone Jason cares about
at risk – patients, friends, co-workers and even
the woman he loves – he's got to stop Ian once
and for all. Will they find some common ground,
or will they bring each other down? Hell hath no
fury like an alter ego scorned.

From TVGUIDE.com: Exclusive: Community's
Donald Glover Develops New Sitcom at NBC
It looks like Donald Glover will be engaging in
some extracurricular work outside of Greendale
Community College. The Community star, who plays
former high school quarterback-turned-air
conditioning repair annex recruit Troy Barnes,
is developing a new show for NBC with 30 Rock
co-executive producer Matt Hubbard.
The new sitcom is being developed as a starring
vehicle for Glover. NBC is said to be committed
to the project, and is close to sealing a deal
for a put pilot (with a large penalty fee if it
doesn't move forward) for the show, which would
be loosely based on Glover's life.
But have no fear, fans of "Troy and Abed in the
Morning": Glover is still committed to a fourth
season of Community, and any new project would
be considered "in second position." That's good
enough news to break out the "no-no juice."
Glover worked as a writer on 30 Rock along with
Hubbard before moving in front of the camera.
Besides Community, the star headlined the Comedy
Central stand-up special Donald Glover: Weirdo
and was also a writer and cast member on the
indie movie Mystery Team. Additionally, the
actor has cultivated a hip-hop career with his
alter ego Childish Gambino.
NBC has also been high on Hubbard, who won the
Emmy Award in 2009 for outstanding comedy
writing (for 30 Rock) and was nominated again in
2010 and 2011. His credits also include Ed.
Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan are also
executive producers on the Glover comedy
project. Universal Television is the studio
behind the project. The show is seen as a big
get for NBC, particularly given Hubbard's and
Community returns to NBC on Friday, October 19,
at 8:30/7:30c; while the final season of 30 Rock
kicks off on Thursday, October 4, at 8/7c.

From digitalspy.com: '30 Rock' Alec Baldwin
'wanted to stick a knife in TMZ founder'
Alec Baldwin has admitted that at one point he
wanted to "kill" TMZ founder Harvey Levin.
The news outlet famously published an angry
voicemail Baldwin left for his daughter Ireland
in 2006, in which he branded her a "a
thoughtless little pig".
Baldwin reflected on his fury over the scandal
in a newly published interview with Vanity Fair.
"I wanted to stick a knife in [TMZ founder
Levin] and gut him and kill him," the 30 Rock
star recalled. "I wanted him to die breathing
his last breath looking into my eyes."
The star also admitted to dreaming of attacking
his ex-wife Kim Basinger's lawyer "with a
baseball bat" at the time.
Baldwin went on to acknowledge that time has led
him to realize that he has acted "unreasonably"
and "childishly" from time to time.
"Hollywood does draw some very strange
characters, and then the power of Hollywood and
what they can do with it becomes like a blood
sport to them," he explained.
Baldwin recently quit Twitter, soon after a
scuffle with a photographer who was bothering
his New York City neighbor.
Watch the trailer for Baldwin's To Rome with
'30 Rock' star Scott Adsit "sad" about final

Rock will end next season.
The actor told The AV Club that playing Pete
Hornberger has been the defining role of his
"Obviously I'm sad [the show is ending], because
this is the best job I've ever had," Adsit
He went on to say: "It's a life-changing job
I've had. So I'm not looking forward to being
set adrift, but hopefully there will be
something on the horizon."
30 Rock is to wrap with a 13-episode seventh
season, including a one-hour series finale.
Tina Fey said earlier in the week that the
timing is right to end 30 Rock.
"Things do end, and you want them to end when
we're running through the finish line and not
limping to it, and not vomiting or pooping
ourselves," Fey explained.
30 Rock exec Robert Carlock has said that he
would love for Michael Sheen and Will Arnett to
return for the sitcom's final episodes.

Alec Baldwin, fiancée Hilaria Thomas 'to
marry June 30'
Baldwin and Thomas are apparently planning to
tie the knot in a Catholic ceremony in New York

Cathedral, reports Page Six.
The Basilica of St Patrick's Old Cathedral was
immortalized in a famous scene from The
Godfather where Michael Corleone (Al Pacino)

April, nearly eight months after the pair were
first linked in the press.

Basinger from 1993 to 2001.
Baldwin's spokesperson declined to offer any

"Things do end, and you want them to end when
we're running through the finish line and not
limping to it, and not vomiting or pooping
ourselves," Fey told the Los Angeles Times.
However, the actress - who plays Liz Lemon -
admitted that she will struggle to leave 30 Rock
"You have to muster the maturity to leave it,"
she said. "But we're all going to be a mess."
30 Rock will conclude with a special hour-long
series finale, Greenblatt has also confirmed.
"I know Tina, Alec Baldwin and the rest [of the
cast] will deliver some of their best work," he
said. "We think the world of Tina."

30 ROCK: SEASON 5
Product Source: Television (Series)
Synopsis: Re-experience the complete fifth
season of the Primetime Emmy® and Golden Globe®
Award-winning comedy 30 Rock, heralded as
“funny” by some random Twitter user and “a
bitterly merry comic jihad against corporate
stupidity and mendaciousness” by Glenn Garvin of
the Miami Herald -- which is pretty much what
the Twitterer said in 140 characters or less.
Primetime Emmy®, Golden Globe® and SAG® Award
winner Tina Fey stars as showrunner Liz Lemon
and Primetime Emmy®, Golden Globe® and SAG®
Award winner Alec Baldwin is corporate executive
Jack Donaghy in this behind-the-scenes romp
about sketch show “TGS;” its neurotic stars,
Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) and Jenna Maroney
(Jane Krakowski) ; hapless NBC page Kenneth
Parcell (Jack McBrayer) and the rest of the
befuddled crew working to create the “magic of
television.” Brought to you by the folks at GE
Kabletown, it’s a season of video obituaries,
cross-dressing love, page showdowns, Canadian
births and other strange events in 22 blerg-worthy
episodes from executive producer Lorne Michaels.

Kabletown, and the company has just launched their official site:
http://www.kabletown.com/ ! The website offers you some hilarious tidbits,
like "Why Kabletown with a K? Because K stands for the Kindness we show
our customers, the Keen interest we take in their needs and because
Cabletown with a C was already the name of a store that sold cable knit
sweaters and legal said we had to spell it with a K." Be sure to browse
around more for company news, careers and definitely take a look at their
programming schedule. This site should be great fun for fans and should
show others why it's so loved!
