30 Rock - One More 30 Rock

NBCUniversal announced the return of the iconic 30 Rock to NBC for a special Upfront event. Beloved characters from the original series including Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin), Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan), Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski), Kenneth Parcell (Jack McBrayer), and more will return for the one-time event and celebrate the stories and talent featured in NBCUniversal's 2020-21 television season. The hour-long, commercial-free event will premiere on NBC on Thursday, July 16 at 8:00pm ET and will be rebroadcast across USA, Bravo, E!, Oxygen, SYFY, and CNBC as well as available to stream on Peacock on Friday, July 17 at 9:00pm ET, showcasing the true power and 200M+ scale of NBCUniversal.

The 30 Rock Upfront special will feature guest appearances from talent from across its portfolio and platform, and will highlight new and returning programming from NBC, Telemundo, USA Network, SYFY, E!, and more, from Entertainment to Sports to News. The special is produced by Broadway Video and Little Stranger, Inc. in association with Universal Television and NBCUniversal Creative Partnerships. Osmany Rodriguez (Saturday Night Live) directed the special. The new format reflects the increasingly direct relationship between NBCUniversal, its fans and its partners, and allows all audiences to tune in for a sneak peek at the future of NBCUniversal's programming. This matches NBCU's One Platform all-audience approach as Upfront negotiations continue.

Originally airing on NBC from October 2006 until January 2013, 30 Rock is the winner of 16 Emmys, including 3 consecutive wins for Outstanding Comedy Series; 7 Golden Globes; 22 Guild Awards among SAG, WGA, DGA and PGD; as well as Image, Peabody and AFI Awards. The series is also the record-holder for most Emmy nominations in one season for any comedy series, and received a total of 103 Emmy nominations over 7 seasons on NBC.
