Hot on the heels of the release of the latest series of the hit show "House Of Cards", Netflix are showing that they're not content to rest on their laurels with the launch of a new comedy show, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", this Friday the 6th of March.
After being commissioned by NBC, it seemed the show may have been destined to be left on the shelf until Netflix stepped in, and why wouldn't they? After all, the show was created and written by Tina Fey (whose writing credits include "30 Rock" and "Mean Girls") and Robert Carlock (who also wrote "30 Rock" and a handful of "Friends" episodes from 2001-2004), not to mention the cast, led by Ellie Kemper ("The Office", "Bridesmaids") and featuring the legend that is Carol Kane ("Taxi", "The Princess Bride", "Addams Family Values", "Dog Day Afternoon").
The story is simple: Kimmy, after living with a doomsday cult for fifteen years, finds her freedom and gets to New York to live in a world that she thought had ended. Her wide eyed enthusiasm seems to be at odds with the way the world has gone lately, but hopefully it won't dampen Kimmy's spirit.
All thirteen episodes of this fish out of water story will be available from Friday the 6th of March, so if you're a binge watcher and there's a "30 Rock" shaped hole in your life, this could be the show for you!
