Synopsis: Multiple award-winning comedy “30 Rock” is told through the comedic voice of Emmy and two-time Golden Globe winner Tina Fey as variety show producer Liz Lemon. The series also features two-time Emmy and three-time Golden Globe winner Alec Baldwin as top network executive Jack Donaghy and Emmy nominee Tracy Morgan as Tracy Jordan, the unpredictable star of Lemon’s hit variety show, “TGS with Tracy Jordan.” Lemon constantly has her hands full, juggling corporate interference from Donaghy and off-the-handle star antics from Jordan, all while attempting to salvage her own personal life. Also rounding out the cast are three-time Emmy nominee Jane Krakowski as Jenna Maroney, the co-star of “TGS,” Scott Adsit as the variety show’s producer Pete Hornberger, Emmy nominee Jack McBrayer as Kenneth, the over-eager and effortlessly endearing NBC page, Judah Friedlander as Frank, the sardonic slacker on the writing staff, and Keith Powell as Toofer, the sophisticated yet sarcastic, Harvard-alum writer. “30 Rock” has welcomed an impressive array of guest stars, including Elaine Stritch, who garnered a 2007 Emmy Award for her performance as Jack Donaghy’s mother and Tim Conway, who won in 2008.
