Picking up the Primetime Emmy Award® for Outstanding Comedy Series two years in a row (2007/2008) and a Golden Globe® for Best Television Series (2008), plus Emmy® and Golden Globe® Awards for stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock is the funniest US TV show in years and currently holds the world record for the most nominations for a comedy series at the Emmy® Awards (17).
Now, with the release of Season 2 on DVD on May 25, 2009, you too can own your very own piece of multi-award winning entertainment to be enjoyed again and again.
Starring Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and Jane Krakowski, 30 Rock chronicles the life of Liz Lemon (Fey), head writer on sketch comedy show TGS with Tracy Jordan.
When her old boss dies, Jack Donaghy (Baldwin) is appointed in his place. His constant attempts to commercialize TGS immediately put him at odds with her. She also has to battle with the new star of TGS Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan), a mildly insane, low-brow movie star/comedian who is hired at Jack’s insistence, whilst Jenna Maroney (Krakowski), the deposed star of TGS struggles to reclaim her top billing on the show.
Also introducing Kenneth Parcell (Jack McBrayer) as the young over-eager and effortlessly endearing NBC intern, Pete Hornberger (Scott Adsit) as the show’s producer whose marriage is seemingly always on the mend, Frank Rossitano (Judah Friedlander) as childish, sarcastic and quick-witted sardonic slacker on the writing staff and Cerie (Katrina Bowden) as the sexy and attractive receptionist who has no interest in television. Her life’s ambition is to be a “young hot mom” and “marry rich and then design handbags.”
Liz must try and run a successful TV show without losing her mind, but each day presents new challenges as she attempts to steer the show from one crisis to another whilst struggling with her own personal life.
Other notable guest appearances include Matthew Broderick, Steve Buscemi, Carrie Fisher, Larry King, Conan O’Brien, Whoopi Goldberg, John McEnroe, Maury Povich, Ghostface Killah and Jerry Seinfeld.
