Ellie Kemper is in full-swing filming now for her new series, created by Tina Fey, called The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
As Kimmy Schmidt, Ellie Kemper is a young woman who lives for 15 years in a bunker with three other women who were part of a cult.
They all think that they survived the apocalypse alone.
When the four women are rescued, of course they go on to do a circuit of talk shows. After the round of talk shows, Ellie Kemper’s character, Kimmy Schmidt, decides to stay in New York City and make it on her own, using only the limited amount of life experience she had in the bunker.
Ellie Kemper looks awesome in this role, and Tina Fey couldn’t be happier to work with Kemper as her leading lady.
“She’s just delightful,” Fey told People of Ellie Kemper. “She is so intelligent and energetic and adorable.”
Tina Fey added, “I think she is so likable and warm and skilled that I hope people really enjoy watching her”
What sweet words about Ellie Kemper!
Ellie Kemper was excited to work with Tina Fey, as well. After making a name for herself on The Office, The Mindy Project, and Bridesmaids, Ellie Kemper was ready to have her own show.
And Ellie Kemper was more than ready to work with a woman that she admires very much.
“I was very excited,” Ellie Kemper admitted about their first meeting about The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. “She’s Tina Fey!”
Yes, she is. And she is amazing! I am excited to watch this show!
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, starring Ellie Kemper, began streaming on Netflix on Friday. The entire first season, all 13 episodes, are now available and Netflix has already guaranteed the show a second season.
