Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will premiere March 6th

Netflix has finally released the trailer for Tina Fey's newest show and has also named a release date. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will premiere on March 6th, and it stars The Office's Ellie Kemper as a doomsday cult survivor starting a new life in New York City. It's the first show Fey and producer Robert Carlock have worked on together since the duo created the primetime comedy 30 Rock.

The show was originally supposed to debut mid-season on NBC in 2015, but Netflix stepped in and picked it up for two full seasons. "We decided this was the best possible scenario to launch this captivating new series," NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told Variety back in November.

Aside from Kemper, a few other familiar faces show up in the trailer that was released alongside the news — namely 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski (who played the egomaniacal Jenna Maroney), Tituss Burgess (who played D'Fwan in the show's "Queen of Jordan" episodes). There's even a brief cameo from Horatio Sanz, who shows up pouting in a mariachi outfit.

East Coast binge-watchers will have to set an alarm for this premiere — the entire 13-episode season will hit Netflix on at 12:01AM PT on March 6th.
