Coming Soon on FIVE - 30 Rock

30 rock

Coming soon to Five is this new, Golden Globewinning sitcom following the fortunes of longsuffering comedy writer Liz Lemon (Emmy-winner Tina Fey, the star and writer of ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘Mean Girls’).

Liz is living every comedy writer’s dream: she is the head writer on a demanding live TV variety programme in New York City. The show stars one of her closest friends, the sweet, but self-absorbed Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski, who starred in ‘Ally McBeal’).

However, Liz’s world is turned upside down when brash new network executive Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin, ‘The Aviator’) interferes with her show and staff, and bullies her into convincing wild and unpredictable movie star Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan ‘Saturday Night Live’, ‘The Longest Yard’) to join the cast. When Jack encourages Liz to get to know Tracy before she rejects him outright, she tries to spend some quality time with the star and soon finds herself swept up with him and his entourage. Can Liz manage the unmanageable so that the show –and her dream –can go on?

30 Rock also stars Scott Adsit (‘For Your Consideration’) as producer Pete Hornberger, and Jack McBrayer as Kenneth, the over-eager NBC ‘page’ – a highly sought-after entry-level position with the network. The show’s creator and executive producer, Lorne Michaels, also created and executive-produced ‘Saturday Night Live’.
