The hilarious true story of the making of the cult classic hit show30 Rock
It’s hard to remember a time when Tina Fey wasn’t a star, but back in the early 2000s, she was anSNLwriter who was far from a household name. It’s even harder to remember when Fey’s sitcom30 Rockwas tanking, but it was-it premiered in the fall of 2006, and by November, theNew York Timeswrote that30 Rockwas “perilously close to a flop.”
But despite all expectations (including those of some of the cast and crew), Tina Fey’s eccentric buddy comedy lasted 138 episodes, spanning seven seasons. It resurrected the career of Alec Baldwin, survived an extended absence by Tracy Morgan, and permeated the culture- its breakneck pacing, oddball characters, and extremely rich joke writing are deeply beloved by millions of fans.
Through more than fifty original interviews with cast, crew, critics, and more, culture writer Mike Roe brings to life the history of the gloriously goofy show that became an all-time classic.The 30 Rock Bookhas everything in it, from tales of the amazing music still stuck in our heads, to the iconic bit characters that make the show, to all the love and drama of the backstage crew . . . and the creative failures and successes along the way. So grab your night cheese and muffin tops, cuddle up with your slanket against your Japanese body pillow, and settle in for the story of one of the funniest shows in television history.
