Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt features a young woman with an unconventional history. Schmidt, played by the talented Ellie Kemper, escapes after 15 years in a doomsday cult, at the age of 29, and chooses to start a new life in New York City. She befriends Lillian Kaushtupper (Carol Kane) who becomes her landlady, and moves into a small apartment with struggling actor Titus An-dromedon (Tituss Burgess), then gets a job as a nanny with wealthy socialite, Jacqueline White (Jane Krakowski), who all teach her how to survive and thrive in a city that is incalculably foreign to her. Created by SNL veterans Robert Carlock and Tina Fey, this comedy is replete with quick wit and colorful characters. With its highly original premise, a brilliant cast, and killer theme song, the show was able to surpass political drama House of Cards in viewership. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a Netflix series, has run for two seasons and was renewed for a third, which is expected to be released next summer.
