Product Source: Television (Series)
Synopsis: Re-experience the complete fifth
season of the Primetime Emmy® and Golden Globe®
Award-winning comedy 30 Rock, heralded as
“funny” by some random Twitter user and “a
bitterly merry comic jihad against corporate
stupidity and mendaciousness” by Glenn Garvin of
the Miami Herald -- which is pretty much what
the Twitterer said in 140 characters or less.
Primetime Emmy®, Golden Globe® and SAG® Award
winner Tina Fey stars as showrunner Liz Lemon
and Primetime Emmy®, Golden Globe® and SAG®
Award winner Alec Baldwin is corporate executive
Jack Donaghy in this behind-the-scenes romp
about sketch show “TGS;” its neurotic stars,
Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) and Jenna Maroney
(Jane Krakowski) ; hapless NBC page Kenneth
Parcell (Jack McBrayer) and the rest of the
befuddled crew working to create the “magic of
television.” Brought to you by the folks at GE
Kabletown, it’s a season of video obituaries,
cross-dressing love, page showdowns, Canadian
births and other strange events in 22 blerg-worthy
episodes from executive producer Lorne Michaels.
