Emmy Award winner Tina Fey writes, executive produces and stars as Liz Lemon in 30 Rock, a workplace comedy where the workplace exists behind-the-scenes of a live variety show. The series is told through the comedic voice of Fey and features Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy, the brash new network executive who has turned the show upside down with his meddling ways.
The single Liz Lemon is living every comedy writer's dream: a head writer on a demanding, live TV show in New York City. Her life is jolted when Donaghy interferes with her show, and bullies Lemon into convincing Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) - a wild and unpredictable movie star - to join the cast. Now Liz must manage the unmanageable so that the show, and her dream, can continue.
Fey recently completed her sixth season as head writer, cast member and co-anchor of the Weekend Update segment on Saturday Night Live. An Emmy award-winner for her writing on Saturday Night Live, Fey has been the head writer of the show since 1999 and first joined the writing staff in 1997. Since her transition to the front of the camera, Fey has won much acclaim, being named one of Entertainment Weekly's Entertainers of the Year, one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People, and, along with her fellow female castmates, one of Glamour's Women of the Year.
Fey expanded to feature films in Spring 2004 as both a screenwriter and an actress, opposite Lindsay Lohan in the hit comedy Mean Girls.
