The show 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 Lemon is living every comedy writer's dream -- head writer on a demanding, live TV program in New York City. Her life is jolted when Donaghy interferes with her show, and bullies Lemon into convincing Tracy Jordan -- a wild and unpredictable movie star -- to join the cast. Now Lemon must manage the unmanageable so that the show -- and her dream -- can go on.

Anyone who has worked in show business and has experienced first hand the miriad of personalities we call celebrity (the natural talent of a prodigy, to unstable egomaniacs) will appreciate the genius of this show. 30 ROCK will go down in history as a sitcom classic because it contains everything from high brow wit to physical and slapstick comedy. Tina Fey has created a most memorable character in the hilariously realistic Liz Lemon. The brilliance is--Lemon doesn't realize how brilliant she is!
