Created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a sitcom following a woman now living in New York City who was rescued from an Indiana cult. She doesn’t like being labeled as a victim and wants to take her life by the horns and adapt to her life of freedom after half her life was spent in captivity. While this doesn’t sound like the premise for a comedy, the show manages to keep viewers laughing and engaged. The show was designed as a role for Ellie Kemper, who plays the role of Kimmy. Now in its second season, it was picked up by Netflix after NBC didn’t want to go down the comedy route that the show would have brought them. It has been well acclaimed since its inception, and is the perfect series to cue up for your next binge watching session.
