- 8 Seasons
30 Rock was a comedy television show that aired on NBC from October 11th, 2006 to January 31st, 2013. Created by Tina Fey, it starred Fey herself as well as Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer, and Scott Adsit. The show is based on Fey's experience working on NBC's sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live, and follows the behind-the-scenes antics of a fictional sketch comedy show called TGS with Tracy Jordan.
Fey played the role of Liz Lemon, the head writer of TGS who is often forced to put out fires caused by the eccentric cast, crew, and network executives. Lemon is known for her chaotic personal life that sees her involved in multiple failed relationships, awkward social situations, and hampered by her many quirks and neuroses. Alec Baldwin starred as Jack Donaghy, the new, straight-laced network executive who is brought in to help turn TGS around. Donaghy is a straight arrow, however, his methods are often unconventional, and his presence often leads to even more chaos behind the scenes.
Tracy Morgan played the role of Tracy Jordan, a talented but unpredictable actor who is the star of TGS. Jordan was infamous for his off-beat behavior on and off the show and is often the source of much of the drama that unfolds throughout the show. Jordan is often over-the-top and unpredictable, which leads to many bizarre situations on and off the air.
Jane Krakowski played the role of Jenna Maroney, a self-absorbed actress who is always desperate for attention. Maroney is known for her shrieking voice, comically exaggerated facial expressions, and diva-like temper tantrums. Maroney's antics often lead to trouble and cause major disruptions on the show.
Jack McBrayer played the role of Kenneth Parcell, the hapless and lovable page who works in the studio, and is a huge fan of TGS. Parcell is known for his enthusiastic attitude, eagerness to please and is often the target of pranks by the rest of the crew. However, he always manages to see the good in everyone and often offers sage advice to his colleagues.
Scott Adsit played the role of Pete Hornberger, the exhausted and overworked producer of TGS. Hornberger is often stressed out and pushed to the brink by the constant chaos caused by his colleagues. However, he manages to keep a level head and is responsible for ensuring that TGS runs smoothly.
30 Rock was known for its witty writing, sharp satire, and brilliant performances by the entire cast. The show's humor was unapologetically irreverent and often parodied popular culture, politics, and the entertainment industry. The show also frequently featured celebrity guest stars such as Will Arnett, Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Banks, and Oprah Winfrey.
Throughout its seven-season run, 30 Rock won numerous awards, including multiple Emmy awards, Golden Globe awards, and Screen Actors Guild awards. Fey herself also won a number of awards for her writing and acting work on the show.
