Tina Fey’s New Netflix Show Stars Ellie Kemper—And It Looks SO GOOD

by Elizabeth Kiefer

So many of our favorite shows in the last couple years have been released through Netflix (here’s looking at you House of Cards and Orange is the New Black). But there’s a new one on its way that we’re literally squealing about  like happy newborn piglets.

Tina Fey paired up with the distributing channel to make Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a show about a doomsday cult survivor—played by BUST fave Ellie Kemper—who begins life completely anew in NYC after being rescued from an Indiana apocalypse bunker.

The series, which was originally set to launch last fall on NBC until Netflix swooped in and picked it up for two seasons, features some other familiar comedic faces, including Jane Krakowski, Tituss Burgess, and even Horatio Sanz (yep, he is wearing a mariachi outfit and it is everything). Basically everyone who makes us laugh until it is acutely painful.

The only rough news? We’re going to have to wait until 12:01AM PST on March 6th for the series to come out—but when it does, we’ll have access to all 13 episodes at once. Huzzah!

Let the binge-watching countdown begin! In the meantime, the trailer (below) is not to be missed!
