[YOUTUBE "mNKEKlXY3Z4"] Netflix released the trailer for its upcoming Tina Fey comedy, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and it's as winsome and weird as you might expect.
Kimmy stars Ellie Kemper (The Office, Bridesmaids) in the title role as a 20-something liberated from a doomsday cult who learns that the apocalypse never actually happened and her entire life was based on lies.
Fey's 30 Rock partner in comedy, Robert Carlock, is also behind the series, so it's no surprise a few familiar faces pop up among the eclectic oddballs Kimmy meets when she moves to New York, finds housing with a Times Square robot performer named Titus (Tituss Burgess) and lands a job nannying for high-strung, self-absorbed working mother Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski, playing to her strengths).

It's an idea that parents will love and children will hate – if the kids ever find out about it!
Netflix has created a faux New Year's Eve countdown starring King Julien, the lemur from the Madagascar films. The three-minute streaming Netflix video helps parents to convince their little ones that 2015 has come, put them to bed and then have a glass of wine and some adult time.
The countdown, which also serves as a promo for the new Netflix show All Hail King Julien, has upbeat music and dancing animals, so the kiddos are sure to have a blast and get a good night's sleep!

He's gorgeous. He's absolutely charming. But where, exactly, did he come from?
Lorenzo Richelmy (pronounced Ree-kale-mee), 24, is the Italian actor who was picked from relative obscurity to star in the Weinstein-produced Marco Polo, to be released on Netflix Friday.
The 10-episode series is expected to be the new House of Cards or Orange is the New Black, in terms of people obsessively binge-watching, with Richelmy poised to become its next big breakout star.
The actor, who says he didn't even speak English when he was chosen for the part of the famous explorer, had to quickly learn kung-fu, horseback riding and sword-fighting, which he's now mastered after seven months of shooting on locations in Italy, Kazakhstan and Malaysia. So what are some other surprising things about Richelmy?
PEOPLE found out when he came to our New York offices for a visit.

Tina Fey's first TV comedy since 30 Rock is heading to Netflix.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which stars Ellie Kemper (The Office) as a woman who escapes a doomsday cult and starts a new life in New York, will debut on Netflix in March. The comedy was originally developed and ordered by NBC for its midseason lineup before Fey and fellow 30 Rock scribe Robert Carlock realized it was a better fit for the home of House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black.
"When the opportunity arose for Tina Fey and Robert Carlock to premiere their new show on Netflix with a two-season commitment, we decided this was the best possible scenario to launch this captivating new series," said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt.

"At this time we are postponing the launch of the new stand-up comedy special Bill Cosby 77," Netflix said Tuesday evening in a statement.

Lauren Morelli, a writer for Orange Is the New Black, and her husband of two years, Steve Basilone, have split – and she's finding love with one of the show's female stars, Samira Wiley.
Morelli and Basilone filed for divorce jointly and split amicably, according to documents obtained by TMZ.
In May, the writer penned an essay on Identities.Mic about how she realized she was gay while writing for OITNB.
"I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set," wrote Morelli.
