The cast of ‘Wine Country‘ (Maya Rudolph, Paula Pell, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Ana Gasteyer) appeared on Busy Tonight on Monday (May 13) for a hilarious interview! Watch the videos below!
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler attended the 2019 NBC Upfront in New York City this morning (May 13)! They were there to present the new trailers of NBC‘s fall schedule. Our gallery has been updated with photos from the event!
The morning’s standouts, however, were Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, whose arrival alone prompted whoops from those in the Radio City audience. The duo garnered particularly big laughs for an exchange about how, as Poehler put it, “the colorful, feathery peacock arms” of NBC had long ago welcomed the ladies in, allowing them to reemerge into swans on the network’s air. “And like swans,” Fey cracked, “we’re mean as hell and we won’t stop pooping … out great stuff for NBC.”
Not to Be Outdone, the Comedy Stylings of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler!
Everyone’s favorite duo, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, had to follow Danson. A tall order, but they killed it.
Fey and Poehler opened by saying they’re delighted to be back at “The 150th” Golden Globes, before lamenting that it doesn’t appear award shows even need hosts anymore, with the jobs going to “high-end refrigerators” these days. “Good luck getting robots to host shows,” Fey said before Poehler reminded her of USA’s hit drama, “Mr. Robot.” Fey responded it’s “just another example of the diverse talent” on NBC.
The two also referenced their time on “SNL” and sitcoms “30 Rock” and “Parks & Recreation,” with Poehler saying they were welcomed with the network’s “feathery peacock arms” which allows them to reemerge into swans. “And like swans,” Fey added, “We’re mean as hell and we won’t stop pooping… out great stuff for NBC.”Source: The Hollywood Reporter, The Wrap

Tina Fey met the 1999 U.S soccer team backstage at the ‘Mean Girls’ musical on Broadway this past Tuesday (May 7). The website Women in the World had an insight into the meeting, and I’ve gathered some excerpts from what Tina said during it, which you can read below. Also, our gallery has been updated with photos from the event.
“I just want to say that you changed a lot of young girls’ lives,” said Jennifer Simard, who plays Ms. Norbury (Fey’s role in the film), and is so convincing that Fey said, “I think sometimes on a boozy Saturday, people think it is me.”
A Broadway musical can take five years to put together — and while everyone says it, no one wants to believe it. Fey thought she could sneak through: “I was like no way, we’re from TV, we work fast. And nope, it took five years,” Fey said. “I would love to do it again. I keep saying I wish we started a second one two years ago, so we had one down the pike.”
Meanwhile, she’s no stranger at her own show, which celebrated its one-year anniversary last month. (Fey says when she watches, she prefers to pace in the back.) “They’re bringing joy to people every night,” she said, “It feels like a garden that I just go check on it sometimes and it’s growing on its own.”
So fast, in fact, the musical’s starting a U.S. tour in September.
They might make a few tweaks: “I always keep an eye on the jokes and make sure the jokes are still fresh,” Fey said. It’s not exactly a joke, but there’s a mention in there now of Neil deGrasse Tyson, who was accused of sexual misconduct late last year. “It’s so funny, because it used to be Garrison Keillor, and then we changed it out of town [in Washington D.C.] and then that happened [with Tyson], and I’m like, ‘I’m running out of unproblematic gentleman.’”
Film and TV are back to taking Fey’s full attention. It was just announced Busy Tonight, the late-night show fronted by Busy Phillips, wasn’t picked up by E! for a second season. Fey’s an executive producer: “It’s a huge bummer and I hope we can find a new place for her to have a show, because she is fantastic and I thought she is moving so much faster on the learning curve than many, many other hosts,” she said. “She really got it and was getting it quick. It’s a waste of a really solid host so hopefully we can find something else.”
Tina Fey announced a new ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ interactive special during a panel held on Wednesday (May 8) in NYC. Our gallery has been updated with photos from the event and you can watch the video of the announcement below!
Three months after wrapping its four-season run on Netflix, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is returning.
The streamer on Wednesday announced that it is reteaming with creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock for an interactive special featuring stars Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski and Carol Kane. The special is similar to Netflix’s Black Mirror film Bandersnatch in that viewers will be able to make choices for the characters.
“We’re thrilled to announce that we’re about to start production on an all-new interactive Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt special, set to debut on Netflix in 2020,” Fey said Wednesday during a Netflix For Your Consideration Emmy panel. “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was one of the first original comedy series on Netflix, and now it will be its first interactive comedy event. Fans will be able to make choices on behalf of our characters, taking different story paths with, of course, different jokes. I think it’s a great fit for our show and will be a great way to officially complete the series.”
Fey and Carlock will return to executive produce alongside Jeff Richmond, Sam Means and David Miner. The special, like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, hails from Universal Television.Source: The Hollywood Reporter
