Plot Synopsis

Created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT is a half-hour, single-camera comedy series that centers on Kimmy Schmidt, a woman who escapes from a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York City, working as a nanny for socialite Jaqueline Voorhees. After 15 years of living in a cult, Kimmy is rescued along with four other woman, causing a national sensation that culminates with an appearance on the TODAY show. Before getting back on the bus to Durnsville, Indiana, however, Kimmy decides it's time to reclaim her life. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, a couple way-past-due library books and a big wad of rescue-fund cash, she's ready to take on New York City. She rents a room from Titus, a gay and talented Broadway-wannabe, who pays the bills by working as a robot in Times Square. Plus, she hangs out with Cyndee, her best friend from the cult, and Gretchen, the only one of the four rescued cult members who has been successfully brainwashed and believes everything she was told. In a May 11, 2014 press release for its upfront presentation, NBC announced that this series would premiere Midseason 2014-2015, but the network cancelled the series in November 2014. Soon after, the program was picked up by Netflix, which immediately ordered a second season and later released all 13 episodes of Season 1 on Friday, March 6, 2015 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
