Trailer: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Puts the 'Cult' in 'Culture Shock'

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Kimmy Schmidt discovers that she likes dancing with her butt, loves eating candy for dinner and hates Velcro, in the full trailer for Ellie Kemper’s new Netflix comedy.

Created by 30 Rock‘s Tina Fey and Robert Carlock and releasing 13 episodes on March 6, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt stars The Office‘s Kemper as a survivor of a doomsday cult, fished out of an underground bunker after 15 years of isolation.

Relocating to New York City — a world quite different from the Indiana hole she’d been living in — she rooms with Times Square robot Titus (played by 30 Rock‘s Tituss Burgess) and finds work as a nanny (to 30 Rock alum Jane Krakowski).

Originally developed for NBC, Kimmy Schmidt already has been renewed by Netflix for Season 2. Watch the trailer and tell us if you’ll be watching.

    that last part about the the guy wanting to be her jeans and her wanting to be his yellow hat SLAYED ME.

  2. Phillip says:

    Is this going to be 30 minutes or will it be longer because it’s on Netflix?

    • johnhelvete says:

      The entire first season was filmed before the show switched from NBC to Netflix, but I did read that some of the later episodes had not been edited yet, so those episodes will likely be longer than the network 21 minute running time.

    can’t wait for this!

  4. Mike says:

    Looks like it could go either way but I will binge watch of course. Love the Netflix!

  5. Julia says:

    So excited!!!

  6. LE says:

    I can see why NBC didn’t see this show working in broadcast but I think it can work perfectly on Netflix

  7. So Happy says:

    I have had the Oh Christmas Tree parody in my head all morning since watching this earlier.

    Looks delightful!

    Is it just me or does this not look all that good? I didn’t laugh much watching the trailer. I thought the opening was actually kind of cringeworthy. Obviously I’ll check out the show since it’s Tina Fey and Netflix, but it just doesn’t look very good. I see why NBC didn’t air it.

  11. N says:

    Looks great!

  12. collectcall says:

    Breaking News!
    White Women Found

    Hispanic Woman also found.

    This is why this show is going to be good. Didn’t catch it at first, luckily I watched the trailer twice to show a friend.

  13. Tea says:

    It was pretty good, I`m in.

  14. Jared says:

    This show never would have lasted on NBC. Smart choice to move it to Netflix.

  17. Stacy says:

    Love Ellie Kemper. Definitely looking forward to this, even though some of the jokes don’t land for me.

  18. Kay L says:

    That was hilarious! Cannot wait until March to watch it. And this part is perfect for Ellie Kemper- she’s at her best when she’s allowed to be full-on awkward and quirky
