Netflix Picks Up Tina Fey's Next Comedy

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which stars Ellie Kemper (The Office) as a woman who escapes a doomsday cult and starts a new life in New York, will debut on Netflix in March. The comedy was originally developed and ordered by NBC for its midseason lineup before Fey and fellow 30 Rock scribe Robert Carlock realized it was a better fit for the home of House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black.

"While it was originally developed for NBC, we have a very drama-heavy mid-season schedule so we're thrilled about this Netflix opportunity. It's an instant win-win for everyone."
