Hi Bryan Here….
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — September 8, 2011 — Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning comedy “30 Rock” is set to debut 5 Nights A Week in national broadcast syndication starting Monday, September 19th. Each laugh-out-loud episode can now be seen on local broadcast stations nationwide (check local listings or go to www.30Rock5NightsAWeek.com for times and stations.)
The multiple award-winning comedy series is told through the comedic voice of Emmy and two-time Golden Globe winner Tina Fey as variety show producer Liz Lemon and features Emmy and three-time Golden Globe winner Alec Baldwin as top network executive Jack Donaghy and Emmy nominee Tracy Morgan as Tracy Jordan, the unpredictable star of Lemon’s hit variety show, “TGS with Tracy Jordan.” Lemon constantly has her hands full, juggling corporate interference from Donaghy and off-the-handle star antics from Jordan, all while attempting to salvage her own personal life.
Also rounding out the cast are two-time Emmy nominee Jane Krakowski as Jenna Maroney, the co-star of “TGS”; Scott Adsit as the variety show’s producer Pete Hornberger; Emmy nominee Jack McBrayer as Kenneth, the over-eager and effortlessly endearing NBC page; Judah Friedlander as Frank, the sardonic slacker on the writing staff; and Keith Powell as Toofer, the sophisticated, yet sarcastic Harvard-alum writer.
Throughout five award-winning seasons, “30 Rock” has welcomed an impressive array of guest stars, including Emmy-nominated performances by Matt Damon, Jennifer Aniston, Jon Hamm, Steve Martin, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Alan Alda, Steve Buscemi, Carrie Fisher and Edie Falco, as well as Elaine Stritch and Tim Conway who garnered Emmy Awards in 2007 and 2008 respectively.
Other memorable cameos and star-studded guest stars have included: Oprah Winfrey, James Franco, Michael Sheen, Brian Williams, David Schwimmer, Megan Mullally, Salma Hayek, Jerry Seinfeld, Whoopi Goldberg, Queen Latifah, Will Ferrell, former Vice President Al Gore and Former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.
“30 Rock” has garnered an impressive 64 Emmy nominations, resulting in 14 wins over four seasons and is currently nominated for 13 additional Emmys this year. In 2009, the show won its third-straight Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series and tied the record for most comedy Emmys in a single season. “30 Rock” has also won a Golden Globe for Best Television Series, a Screen Actor’s Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, three Producers Guild Danny Thomas Producer of the Year Awards in Comedy Episodic Television, three Writers Guild Awards (WGA) for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and two WGA Awards for Episodic Comedy, a Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy and a Peabody Award.
