Ever since breaking out in Bridesmaids and on The Office, Ellie Kemper has been one of Hollywood’s most underused actresses. Sure, she’s popped up on The Mindy Project and on some show on Crackle, but Kemper deserved her own starring role to really show off her comedic charms. Well it’s Tina Fey to the rescue. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt marks Fey’s return to TV following her successful run on 30 Rock, and stars Kemper as a girl who gets rescued from an “underground apocalpyse” cult and has to redo her life in New York City, a dark twist on the fish-out-of-water premise. Hijinx ensue with the help of a loony new roommate and ridiculous new boss (played by 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski), but judging by this new trailer, it’s a perfect showcase for Kemper’s talents. The whole show, which has already been renewed for season two, will be available on Netflix starting March 6.
