Netflix releases trailer for Tina Fey-produced comedy series ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’

By Andrew Sims | Edited by Brandi Delhagen

Netflix’s next original series is one created by 30 Rock executive producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. Today, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s first trailer was released.

The new trailer is our first proper look at the upcoming series starring The Office alum Ellie Kemper, who appears to be born for this role.

As you can see, the trailer for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt sets up the premise: Kimmy and the rest of her cult have been led to believe they needed to live underground for 15 years because of an apocalypse. When they’re freed, only Kimmy is interested in joining the modern world – specifically, New York City. Throughout the trailer Kimmy is stunned by how the world has changed in the 15 years she’s been stuck underground and gets herself into funny situations. Take a look:

Kimmy is surrounded by a great cast of supporting characters including a rich woman who she works for played by Jane Krakowski (the Fiji water scene in the trailer is hilarious), and a roommate played by Tituss Burgess (another 30 Rock alum).

30 Rock producers Jeff Richmond, Jack Burditt, and David Miner are all back to produce with Fey and Carlock. In other words, this is one big 30 Rock reunion.

All thirteen episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt premiere on March 6 on Netflix.
