Our beloved Netflix original, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, has the fingerprints of Tina Fey all over it, and it is a marvelous thing. Fey, who created the show and serves as an executive producer (along with popping up as a guest star a few times) lovingly placed Kimmy deep in the heart of New York City, and also, perfectly within the 30 Rock timeline. Also maybe Mad Men. The proof is there if you look hard enough for it.
It’s because of this that Fey set out to squeeze in a 30 Rock cameo to end all 30 Rock cameos into Kimmy Schmidt Season 3, but alas, it was just too good and perfect for this world. Hold onto something you love, because Kenneth the Page was *this close* to crossing paths with Kimmy.
At the Kimmy Schmidt Season 3 premiere over the weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival, Fey explained to the crowd that they happened to be filming at 30 Rockefeller Center, and she had an idea. She knew Jack McBrayer — who played immortal NBC Page for all seven seasons — happened to be in NYC.
Fey promised the crowd that she’s going to try and get Kenneth and Kimmy to meet at some other time, and hey, never say never. Remember, nothing’s impossible except dinosaurs.
